KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A 40-year-old Kansas City man has been sentenced to 15 years in federal prison for his role in a conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine and possessing firearms while trafficking in drugs.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Kansas City says Carlos Olivas, also known as “Chuco,” was sentenced Thursday after pleading guilty in April.

A northwest Missouri mother and her son were sentenced on Wednesday for participating in the same meth-dealing conspiracy.

Prosecutors say 47-year-old Onis Eads - also known as Onis Jones - of Humphreys was sentenced to three years and 11 months, while her son, 25-year-old John Carr of Galt, was sentenced to eight years and 11 months.

Carr and his mother both admitted purchasing large amounts of methamphetamine from Olivas so they could sell it.
