RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A western South Dakota man who pleaded guilty in a methamphetamine distribution case has been sentence to 10 years in prison.

U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson says 23-year-old Wilber Sinai Valdovinos-Gil will also spend five years on supervised release.

A federal jury indicted Valdovinos-Gil in 2012 for conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance.

Authorities say Valdovinos-Gil conspired and agreed with a co-defendant and other people to distribute more than 3.3 pounds of methamphetamine in the state between June 2010 and April 2012.

Co-defendant Hugo Arechiga-Torres is scheduled to be sentenced in June.
