WOONSOCKET — A 46-year-old city man faces a mandatory minimum of five years in federal prison after pleading guilty yesterday to federal charges of selling cocaine from an auto repair business in the city.

Chala pled guilty in U.S. District Court Tuesday to one count of distributing 28 or more grams of crack cocaine and two counts of distributing crack cocaine.
