U.S. Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Wood, South Dakota, man charged with Conspiracy to Distribute a Controlled Substance was sentenced on October 4, 2011, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange. Peter Paul Fast Horse, age 26, was sentenced to 48 months in custody with 5 years of supervised release.

Fast Horse was indicted by a federal grand jury in January 2011. He pled guilty to the indictment in July 2011. The charge stems from the defendant knowingly and intentionally distributing 50 grams or more of a mixture or substance containing a detectable amount of methamphetamine. The investigation was conducted by the Northern Plains Safe Trails Drug Enforcement Task Force. The case was prosecuted by Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Ted L. McBride.

Fast Horse was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshal to begin serving his sentence.
