EASTON, Pa. -

A Northampton County man who police said brought a child along with him when he sold drugs will spend years behind bars.

Michael Astacio was sentenced Wednesday to three-and-a-half to seven-and-a-half years in prison.

Astacio, of Easton, sold heroin to an undercover cop on multiple occasions while he had a young child in his car, police said.

Astacio pleaded guilty to drug charges in June.
