ROANOKE — A 26-year-old Hillsville man received a 15-year sentence in federal prison for drugs May 19.
Timothy Ray Blevins, after pleading guilty to a charge of conspiracy to distribute more than 500 grams of methamphetamine, appeared before Judge Glen Conrad for sentencing last Thursday in U.S. District Court, according to court records.
Blevins, who has a known alias of “Little Rock,” will have to spend 188 months behind bars in the federal prison system.
The judge ordered that Blevins be placed in an intensive drug rehabilitation program. Conrad also recommended Blevins be placed at the closest Bureau of Prisons facility to his home as possible.
After he gets out, Blevins will also have a term of supervised release of five years.
Indicted with two others, Blevins saw the judge dismiss a count of distribution of meth against him.
Blevins is also required to pay a fine of $1,000.
