BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A Denham Springs man will spend 15 years in prison for selling crack.

The court said Joshua Kinchen, 25, had a "complete lack of respect for the law."

Kinchen was found guilty in September 2011 of distributing crack cocaine.  During the trial, Kinchen claimed his brother sold the drugs and that he had been misidentified.

He was arrested in August 2009 for selling drugs.  A month before that arrest, he pled guilty to possession of cocaine for a 2008 drug arrest.
