GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - A 27-year-old Picayune man has pleaded guilty to a federal charge of possession with intent to distribute meth.

Jaron Stubbs faces a prison sentence of up to 40 years.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1Fa6AoG ) Stubbs entered the plea Tuesday before Chief District Judge Louis Guirola Jr. In addition to prison time, Stubbs is facing four years of post-release supervision along with up to $5,000 in fines.

His sentencing is set for Aug. 11.

A second person, 55-year-old Gerald Calhoun, of Carriere, pleaded guilty to the same charge in April and has a June 23 sentencing date.

A federal grand jury indicted Stubbs and Calhoun on three conspiracy charges and one count of possession with intent to distribute. In exchange for their pleas, the government dismissed the remaining charge.
