Minot man sentenced to more than 5 years in prison on federal meth charges

MINOT, N.D. — A North Dakota man accused of dealing drugs has been sentenced to more than five years in prison.

Deangelo Halfacre, of Minot, pleaded guilty earlier to conspiracy to possess with intent to deliver a controlled substance, and witness tampering.

Halfacre was arrested in February 2012 on the drug charge and March 2012 on the witness tampering charge.

Authorities say the conspiracy involved methamphetamine that was obtained in California and Washington State and delivered to North Dakota.

U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland sentenced Halfacre to 66 month in prison.

A co-defendant in the case, Montrail Butcher, is scheduled to be sentenced April 22 on a drug conspiracy charge.
