SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A Rapid City man serving a 25-year sentence in prison for drug charges has bought himself another 10 years for tampering with a confidential informant.

South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley says 43-year-old Derek Vice was sentenced on Thursday for conspiracy to commit tampering with a witness.

Vice was sentenced to 25 years for distribution and possession of methamphetamine in August of 2012. He admitted to tampering with a confidential informant prior to trial.

His new 10-year prison term will follow his existing 25-year sentence.
