FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A 40-year-old man has pleaded guilty in federal court to dealing methamphetamine in North Dakota, Minnesota and Arizona.

Jose Alvarado is charged with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute a controlled substance. He faces a maximum penalty of life in prison and a minimum mandatory sentence of 20 years.

Fargo police arrested Alvarado outside a Fargo gas station on Feb. 5.

Prosecutors say in court documents they plan to recommend a sentence on the lower end of the guideline range because Alvarado accepted responsibility for his actions and offered a timely guilty plea.

Sentencing is scheduled for May 23.
