A father and his two sons could spend up to 20 years in prison after being convicted of drug distribution.

Jackie, Kelvin and James Mize, all of Harrogate, Tennessee, were convicted of conspiring to distribute oxycodone and laundering the money earned by selling the drugs.

Authorities say they brought the pills from Florida to sell in Tennessee.

In addition to a possible 20 years in prison, all three must give up some property and must pay $3 million in fines. That amount is what authorities say represents the street value of the pills they sold.

Sentencing for the three is set for November.
