A Manchester resident was sentenced to 20 years in prison for his conviction on drug and weapon charges.

Dyshawn Moss, 42 was convicted on October 27, 2022, following a four-day trial before U.S. District Judge Michael A.

Judge Shipp imposed the sentence in Trenton federal court.

According to documents in this case and evidence at trial, on May 24, 2019, Moss was arrested while standing outside of his Manchester apartment building.
