PIKEVILLE, Ky. — A Danville man has been sentenced to more than 26 years in prison, after admitting to delivering meth to drug dealers in Floyd County.

Christopher Francisco, 30, pleaded guilty to federal charges of possession of more than 500 grams of meth with the intent to deliver, and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking offense.

When he was arrested back in February, police found approximately three pounds of meth in his car, along with a loaded 9 millimeter handgun.

On Monday, a judge sentenced him to 262 months on the drug charge and 60 months of the gun charge, for a total of 322 months.

He also faces drug trafficking charges in Boyle County. He is expected to plead guilty in those cases on Thursday.
