RAF LAKENHEATH, England — An airman stationed here who pleaded guilty to using and distributing cocaine, marijuana and Ecstasy was sentenced to 17 months’ confinement, reduction to E-1 and a bad-conduct discharge.

Jerome E. Sligh, who was an airman first class before sentencing, admitted to using and intending to distribute the drugs for about the past year.

Sligh entered his guilty plea on Wednesday afternoon, and was sentenced that evening.

Sligh is the seventh airman to plead guilty to such charges, the result of an undercover sting at Lakenheath last year that netted 10 airmen in all.
