MADISON, Wis. (WEAU) -- A Rusk County man is sentenced to federal prison for possessing meth with the intent to distribute.
On June 13, U.S. District Judge William Conley sentenced 60-year-old James Unser of Sheldon to six years in federal prison followed by four years of supervised released.
Unser pleaded guilty to the charge on March 21.
On November 16, 2016, Unser was arrested in Dunn County and found to be in possession of 57 grams of methamphetamine. While out on bond for that case, officers say he continued to sell drugs, and on December 30, 2017, he was arrested in Rusk County with 120 grams of methamphetamine.
The charge against Unser was part of an investigation conducted by the Rusk, Dunn, Taylor, and Chippewa County Sheriffs' Departments and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.
