A 46-year-old Lincoln man was sentenced in federal court Friday to 51 months in prison followed by a three-year term of supervised release stemming from a 2019 drug charge.

Chief U.S. District Judge John M. Gerrard sentenced Ignacio Williams Jr. for possession with the intent to distribute 50 grams or more of actual methamphetamine, according to a news release from the Department of Justice. 

The sentencing comes nearly two years after Lincoln Police Department officers encountered Williams in a van with another individual in August 2019. 

The van's other occupant had more than 90 grams of lab-confirmed meth in a purse, along with a digital scale and baggies, according to the release. 

The release said officers learned Williams had agreed to sell the meth found in the purse.
