POCATELLO – Edward Behrens, 28, of Idaho Falls, Idaho, was sentenced yesterday in United States District Court to 60 months in prison for distribution of methamphetamine, U.S. Attorney Wendy J. Olson announced. U.S. District Judge Edward J. Lodge also ordered Behrens to serve three years of supervised release following his term of incarceration and to complete 200 hours of community service while on supervision.
