WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Wichita man is going to prison for the $20,000 sale of a pound of methamphetamine to an undercover officer.

The U.S. Attorney's office says 39-year-old Patrick C. Hains was sentenced in federal court Thursday to slightly more than 10 years.

Hains pleaded guilty earlier to conspiracy to distribute meth and using a firearm in a drug crime.

He was arrested Jan. 14 after a Wichita police officer working undercover paid him $20,000 in cash for a pound of meth. Investigators also seized a shotgun that Hains kept to protect himself during drug transactions.

One co-defendant is awaiting trial, and another will be sentenced Aug. 1.
