EDDY COUNTY, N.M. - A man arrested in Eddy County has been sentenced on meth trafficking charges.

38-year-old Angel Ochoa will spend 10 years in federal prison.

He was not allowed to have a weapon because he was previously convicted on felony drug charges.

Ochoa pled guilty to the charges and admitted to selling methamphetamine.
