A federal appeals panel has upheld a five-year sentence for a man convicted in Little Rock of planning to sell more than 200 pounds of marijuana.

Naim Omari Page had pleaded guilty to two charges and pledged to cooperate with the government. But the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Thursday that Page didn’t provide names of his Little Rock customers as promised.

Page argued he should get a shorter sentence because of his cooperation but prosecutors argued that Page didn’t fulfill the terms of his plea bargain.

The Federal Bureau of Prisons shows that the 33-year-old Page is serving a sentence in Beaumont, Texas, and that he’s set for release in 2015.

Page was indicted for his role in a marijuana operation between 1999 and 2009.
