21 months for Calif. man for dealing drugs on ship

A judge in the U.S. Virgin Islands has sentenced a California man to 21 months in prison for dealing drugs on board a cruise ship.

U.S. District Court Judge Curtis Gomez said Wednesay that Steven Barry Krumholz used his cruise ship room "as if it was an apothecary for controlled substances."

Krumholz pleaded guilty in July to dealing drugs. The 51-year-old man admitted selling ecstasy, methamphetamine and ketamine to fellow passengers on board the Allure of the Seas last February.

The West Hollywood man had faced as long as 20 years in prison.
