An Oregon man on Monday denied federal drug and gun charges accusing him of trafficking methamphetamine in Wibaux County.

Christopher Kyle Sherrod, 35, pleaded not guilty to a three-count indictment charging him with possession with intent to distribute meth, being a felon in possession of a firearm and carrying a firearm in relation to a drug trafficking crime.

The indictment alleges Sherrod possessed meth and a Hi-point .40-caliber pistol on May 1 in Wibaux County. Sherrod was convicted of felonies in 1998 and 2009 in Oregon, the indictment said.

If convicted, Sherrod faces a minimum of 10 years to life in prison and a possible $10 million fine on the drug count and a mandatory consecutive five years on carrying firearm in relation to drug trafficking.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Carolyn Ostby continued Sherrod’s detention. The case will be heard by Senior U.S. District Judge Sam Haddon.
