A Niagara Falls man could be sentenced to 10 years to life in prison after pleading guilty Tuesday to charges of possessing crack cocaine with intent to sell.

Octavius Miller, 32, was charged in December 2010, after police found him with about 123 grams of the drug during a search of his Cleveland Avenue residence. Miller, who could also be fined $8 million, pleaded guilty before U.S. Magistrate Judge Hugh B. Scott.

The plea was the culmination of an investigation by Niagara Falls Police, U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.
