SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A Mission man has been sentenced to 10 years and six months in prison on methamphetamine charges.

Authorities say 31-year-old Jason Willard Menard was sentenced on Monday. He pleaded guilty in February to distributing 500 grams or more of methamphetamine beginning in 2013.

Authorities say Menard was a leader in his distribution network and had numerous dealers working for him.

This case was investigated by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services and the Northern Plains Safe Trails Drug Enforcement Task Force.
