FARGO, North Dakota — A man accused of dealing methamphetamine in North Dakota and Minnesota has been sentenced to three months in prison.
Brian Noyes is charged in federal court with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute a controlled substance. He pleaded guilty in June.
Authorities say the 39-year-old Noyes was part of a ring that began in January 2013.
The charge carries a maximum penalty of 40 years in prison and a minimum mandatory term of five years, but Noyes was given credit for accepting responsibility and giving a timely guilty plea.
Defense attorney Alexander Reichert says his client has been clean and sober for 17 months and has an outstanding support system.
