A 28-year-old Lincoln man has been sentenced to 14 years in federal prison.

Jose L. Gonzalez pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute 500 grams or more of methamphetamine.

Chief U.S. District Judge John M. Gerrard sentenced him Friday to the prison term plus five years on supervised release.

United States Attorney Joe Kelly said information provided to law enforcement indicated that between June 2015 and January 2017, Gonzalez was involved in the distribution of at least three pounds of methamphetamine in the Lincoln area.

In October 2015, when Lincoln Police stopped him on a traffic violation, he admitted using and selling large amounts of meth.

The case was investigated by the Lincoln/Lancaster County Narcotics Task Force.
