A longtime methamphetamine dealer from Hardin will spend 10 years in federal prison for trafficking the drug on the Crow and Northern Cheyenne reservations.

Chief U.S. District Judge Richard Cebull on Thursday sentenced Geofredo James Littlebird, Jr., 26, to the minimum mandatory term and dismissed two other counts. Littlebird pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute meth.

Cebull said Littlebird had distributed large amounts of the drug on both reservations since 2003. He held him responsible for up to 11 pounds of meth. 

Assistant U.S. Attorney Lori Suek said Littlebird admitted that he had been distributing meth for two men, one from Billings and one from Laurel, since 2007.
