  • A rural Leavenworth man has been sentenced to more than 11 years in prison for four drug distribution charges, a prosecution official said.
    Michael Roberts, 37, was sentenced Wednesday in Leavenworth County District Court. He was sentenced to 136 months in prison for two counts of distribution of methamphetamine and two counts of distribution of marijuana.
    Roberts reportedly sold drugs to a confidential informant, which led to a search of his residence Oct. 30, according to County Attorney Todd Thompson.
    Inside the residence, members of the Leavenworth County Sheriff's Office found methamphetamine, various pills and drug paraphernalia. A security camera also had been set up at the residence.
    Thompson said Roberts waived his Miranda rights and admitted to authorities to selling drugs. He eventually pleaded no contest to the four charges.
