INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – An Indianapolis man convicted on 20 gun and heroin-related counts has been sentenced to more than 33 years in prison.

District Court Judge Sarah Evans Barker handed down the sentence of 400 months in prison to 39-year-old Anthony Lomax on Thursday following his convictions on charges including conspiring to possess heroin, possession with intent to distribute heroin, distribution of heroin and illegal possession of firearms.

His attorney, Mario Garcia, said he plans to file an appeal.

U.S. Attorney Joe Hogsett said two other men – Lomax’s brother, Brandon, and Demond Glover – also were found guilty of charges in the case. Their sentencing dates are undetermined.

Hogsett says Lomax and associates dealt heroin in and around the Haughville area of Indianapolis between 2009 and 2012. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
