Minneapolis man sentenced to 11 years in prison in North Dakota methamphetamine conspiracy


FARGO, North Dakota — A Minneapolis man has been sentenced to 11 years in prison for dealing large quantities of methamphetamine in North Dakota and Minnesota.

Dennis Lee Richardson pleaded guilty in March to a federal charge of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute a controlled substance. Authorities say the ring involved more than 500 grams of meth.

Richardson's lawyer, Tatum Limbo, argued for a sentence of seven years. The government recommended 14 years in prison.

U.S. District Judge Ralph Erickson said during sentencing that Richardson's history of substance abuse has led to his legal problems.
