Green County man sentenced for role in meth conspiracy

A Green County man was sentenced Thursday for knowingly and intentionally possessing methamphetamine with intent to distribute, according to a release.

Christopher Stevens, 36, of Albany, was sentenced to 72 months in federal prison, officials said. He pleaded guilty to the charge on Nov. 6.

During sentencing, the judge described Stevens as having played a similar role as a local distributor only, in connection with a larger meth conspiracy operation that was responsible for numerous pounds of meth being shipped from California to Wisconsin, according to the release.

About 333 grams of meth can be attributed to Stevens, officials said.

Stevens and 10 other people were charged in federal indictments for their roles in this meth distribution conspiracy, according to the release. Nine of the 11 people have pleaded guilty. Stevens is the sixth to be sentenced.
