Three men in three separate cases were sentenced to prison Thursday for dealing in cocaine.

James Spencer, 55, of Gary, pleaded guilty in February for selling 1.7 grams of cocaine for $50. He was sentenced to seven years in prison.

Monroe Owens, 31, of Lake Station sold 3.1 gross grams for $150 in December 2009. He pleaded guilty last month and was also sentenced to seven years in jail.

Michael Wilson, 24, of East Chicago sold .5 gross grams of the drug in September 2009. With a search warrant, Chicago police also found 30 grams of marijuana in his home, and he pleaded guilty last month to dealing in cocaine and possession of marijuana. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Each of the men sold the cocaine to a confidential informant working with police in their city.
