LAS VEGAS (AP) — A 26-year-old Mexican citizen who prosecutors say headed a Las Vegas-based ring sending methamphetamine to places including Indian reservations in Montana was sentenced to more than 11 years in federal prison.

U.S. Attorney Daniel Bogden said Wednesday that Jesus Guadalupe Felix Burgos was sentenced Tuesday by U.S. District Judge James Mahan in Las Vegas. Mahan also sentenced Burgos to five years of post-prison supervised release.

Burgos pleaded guilty in February 2012 to conspiracy to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine

Bogden says Mahan determined that Burgos hired others to move drugs, rent vehicles and translate.

Nine other people were also charged after an investigation led by an FBI task force in Billings, Mont.

Eight pleaded guilty before trial.

A federal jury last week convicted one translator of drug conspiracy.
