GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) - A man who was convicted of killing a Cascade County sheriff’s deputy in 2014 has pleaded guilty to federal drug trafficking and weapons charges.

The Great Falls Tribune reports (https://gftrib.com/1SzCBy2 ) that Adam Sanchez appeared in court Tuesday for a change of plea hearing. He pleaded guilty to possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.

As part of Sanchez’s plea deal, prosecutors have agreed to not prosecute Sanchez’s mother, Susan Sanchez, for any role she may have played in his crimes.

Sanchez faces a maximum penalty of life imprisonment and a $10 million fine when he’s sentenced July 28.

He’s already serving a life sentence for the death of 33-year-old Deputy Joe Dunn during a high-speed chase.
