Minnesota Man Sentenced To Life In SD Drug Case

February 1, 2012, 11:52 AM

SIOUX FALLS, SD - A Minnesota man charged with distributing methamphetamine in South Dakota has been sentenced to life in prison.

Fifty-one-year-old Viengxay Chantharath of Worthington, Minn., was indicted in September for conspiracy to distribute 500 grams or more of meth. He was found guilty after a five-day trial.

Chantharath was one of 17 people charged in the case. The U.S. attorney's office says 11 people have pleaded guilty, two await trial, two are fugitives and one awaits sentencing.

Authorities say Chantharath traveled from Worthington to Sioux Falls on several occasions and distributed meth from local motels.
