Rep. Trey Radel gets probation for cocaine bust, to seek treatment

(CNN) - U.S. Rep. Trey Radel was sentenced to a year of probation after pleading guilty Wednesday to misdemeanor cocaine possession - a charge that authorities say came after he bought a small amount of cocaine in a sting in the nation's capital last month.

Radel, a 37-year-old first-term Republican from Florida, said at his sentencing in D.C. Superior Court that he plans to enter an inpatient drug treatment program in Naples, Florida. It wasn't immediately clear how long he would be in treatment.
