PIKEVILLE, Ky. — A Pike County man has been sentenced to more than 16 years in prison for his role in a meth distribution conspiracy.

Brian Keith Wells, 45, of McCarr, previously pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute more than half a kilogram of meth. In his plea agreement, he admitted to distributing more than 3 lbs. of meth in Pike and Mingo counties over a period of 16 months.

His girlfriend and codefendant — Christina Tidwell, 33, of McCarr — was sentenced last week to 6-and-a-half years in prison.
