  • A Leavenworth has been sentenced to more than four years in prison for selling methamphetamine, according to a prosecution office.
    Billy Harold Hill, 52, was sentenced Friday in Leavenworth County District Court to 49 months in prison for three counts of meth distribution, according Assistant County Attorney Adam Y. Zentner.
    Hill reportedly was the seller in several drug buys coordinated by detectives from the Leavenworth County Sheriff's Office in September 2012.
    Hill also was a passenger in a car that was stopped in November 2012 by members of the Leavenworth Police Department. He reportedly was in possession of methamphetamine that was packaged for sale.
    Officers also found a large sum of cash and a piece of paper in Hill’s possession that appeared to be a log of illegal drug sales. Hill’s cellphone also contained text messages regarding illegal drug sales, according to Zentner.
    Hill pleaded guilty to the three charges as part of an agreement with the prosecution. A fourth charge was dismissed.
