4 years in prison for ex-GM of WMass football team

Lawrence Posey was general manager of the Pittsfield Aces

PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) — The former general manager of a now-defunct western Massachusetts semi-pro football team has been sentenced to up to four years in state prison for dealing drugs.

Lawrence Posey, of Pittsfield, was sentenced Thursday and will serve his Massachusetts sentence after completing a 4 1/2-year prison sentence in New York state.

Prosecutors say in 2010 the 37-year-old Posey sold cocaine to an undercover state police officer several times.

While out on bail in connection with drug charges in Massachusetts, Posey was arrested in Columbia County, New York in February 2011 while riding in a car containing cocaine.

The Berkshire Eagle reports that Posey’s attorney described her client as a “middleman” and not a major dealer.
