GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - Federal prosecutor say a member of the Black Gangsta Disciples street gang has been sentenced to more than 10 years in prison and fined $7,500 in a meth distribution case in George County.

Chief U.S. District Judge Louis Guirola Jr. also ordered 41-year-old Kermit Blackston, of Lucedale, to serve five years under post-release supervision. Blackston pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute meth.

In exchange for his plea, The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1iKHtFs) the government dismissed a conspiracy charge.

A federal grand jury indicted eight others in the drug conspiracy case.

The meth racket the nine are accused of pulling off occurred between October 2013 and February.
