Man receives life for role in ND drug conspiracy

FARGO (AP) — A man has been sentenced to life in prison for his role in a North Dakota drug conspiracy.

A jury found Donavan Slagg guilty in January of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute controlled substances, and money laundering.

Authorities say the conspiracy involved methamphetamine that was moved from California, Nevada and Colorado to the Bismarck-Mandan area.

U.S. District Judge Ralph Erickson handed down the mandatory life sentence on Thursday in Fargo.

Slagg's mother, Tamara Heid, was sentenced Wednesday in the same case. She received 18 months in prison for money laundering.
