A convicted marijuana dealer in suburban Philadelphia whose trial brought up Denver Broncos running back Correll Buckhalter has been sentenced to four to eight years in prison.

Delaware County prosecutors said Wednesday that evidence emerged at trial that 36-year-old Styles Beckles sold to customers including Buckhalter. But Buckhalter, a former Philadelphia Eagle, denies buying drugs from Beckles and hasn't been charged. His agent, J.R. Rickert, has said that Buckhalter never bought drugs from Beckles or even spoke to him on the phone.

Beckles is to have two years of probation once he is released from prison.
