FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A North Dakota man accused of dealing methamphetamine has been sentenced to more than 10 years in prison.


Devin Keplin, of Grand Forks, pleaded guilty in July to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute a controlled substance.

Authorities say the conspiracy moved drugs in North Dakota, Minnesota, Texas and elsewhere.

U.S. District Judge Ralph Erickson sentenced Keplin to 10 years and six months in prison, to be followed by five years of supervised release.

The government recommended a 12-year sentence. Keplin's attorney asked for five years.
