JACKSON, Miss. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - A man has been sentenced to nearly seven years in prison in a federal methamphetamine case from Neshoba County.

Dwight Deshay Willis, 29, was indicted in June on a charge of possessing with intent to distribute more than 200 grams of the drug. The indictment says the crime happened in August 2012.

Willis was sentenced Monday to 82 months in prison during a hearing in U.S. District Court in Jackson.

Willis pleaded guilty in July.

U.S. Attorney Gregory K. Davis says in a news release that Willis was arrested following a traffic stop in August. Davis says the methamphetamine had a purity of over 90 percent.
