COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Federal prosecutors have asked a judge to consider a reduced sentence for a former South Carolina treasurer convicted of a cocaine charge.

The prosecutors did not specifically say in court documents filed Thursday whether Thomas Ravenel should go to prison. Ravenel pleaded guilty in September to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine. He is set to be sentenced Friday.

He faces up to 20 years in prison, though his plea agreement calls for a reduced sentence because he has cooperated with the investigation.

Ravenel's attorneys say he shouldn't serve any prison time. A man who admitted selling cocaine to Ravenel is also set to be sentenced Friday. Michael Miller has pleaded guilty to two federal drug charges.
