SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Three South Dakota men charged in a wide-ranging drug conspiracy have been sentenced in federal court.
Fifty-seven-year old Edward Vocu, 62-year old Moses Montileaux Sr. and 57-year-old Zeno Little were charged with conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance. They were among 18 people charged in the case.
Vocu was sentenced to 10 years and prison and Montileaux to five years. Little was ordered to serve three years of probation.
Authorities say the investigation began in October 2008 and involved the distribution of marijuana, cocaine and methamphetamine on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.
