A 37-year-old Buffalo man was sentenced to four years in prison for selling heroin to an undercover investigator three times last fall.

In addition to the jail time, State Supreme Court Justice Christopher Burns ordered three years post-release supervision. Pesante has a prior felony drug conviction from 2009.
