HAMILTON, Mont. (AP) - A 46-year-old California man with a lengthy criminal record has been sentenced to 100 years in prison in a Montana drug case.

District Judge Jeffrey Langton declared Matthew David Sherman of Huntington Beach, California, a persistent felony offender before sentencing him Friday. Sherman pleaded guilty in December to felony possession of dangerous drugs and possession with intent to distribute.

Langton gave Sherman credit for the 523 days he has spent in jail since his arrest in October 2013, when officers recovered more than 44 grams of methamphetamine, 47 grams of marijuana along with some morphine in Sherman’s motel room.

Deputies learned Sherman was in western Montana after finding large empty packages containing drug residue in another motel room, along with a mouth guard that DNA testing confirmed belonged to Sherman.
