FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Two people accused of dealing drugs on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation have signed plea agreements in federal court.

Mason Fox and Amelia Reed have agreed to plead guilty to distribution of methamphetamine, which carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.

Authorities say the defendants sold drugs on the reservation between May and November of last year.

Fox also pleaded guilty to possession of a firearm and ammunition by a drug user. He faces an additional 10 years in prison.

In exchange for their pleas, prosecutors agreed to drop other charges against Fox and Reed, including distribution of hydrocodone and oxycodone.
