COVINGTON, KY - A Texas man was sentenced to 72 months in federal prison for his role in a conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine in northern Kentucky.
U.S. District Judge David Bunning sentenced 52-year-old Michael Brian Brown on Thursday and placed him on supervised release for five years after he completes his prison term.
Brown admitted to distributing over 50 grams of pure methamphetamine from November of 2011 through April of 2012.
