A Sudbury man who had stayed out of trouble for 10 years, was sentenced to 18 months in jail Wednesday after pleading guilty to trying to sell $5,000 in cocaine to an undercover police officer.

Normand Imbeau, 37, tried to sell 53 grams of high-grade cocaine to the officer, who gave him $5,000 in return.

Court heard the officer had gained the confidence of Imbeau's former girlfriend.

Last June 29, the woman and officer joined Imbeau at a Sudbury hotel, he showed he had cocaine on him and they arranged a deal at a downtown Sudbury home.

Besides the long jail term, Justice William Fitzgerald ordered Imbeau to forfeit the $5,000 he received. Imbeau was prohibited from owning or possessing any prohibited weapon or firearm for 10 years.
