The son of U.S. Surgeon General Jocelyn Elders was sentenced to 10 years in prison for selling cocaine to an undercover police officer last December. Kevin Elders' mother fought back tears in the court as he was led away. The decade stint is the minimum mandatory sentence for the crime. Just days before he was arrested last year, the Surgeon General suggested that the legalization of drugs be studied as a possible antidote to urban violence.
