HELENA, Mont. - A Helena couple has been sentenced to more than 11 years in prison and fined more than $11,000 for a decade of meth distribution. The U.S. attorney's office says Richard A. Stine and Connie Holland Stine, both 58, were given identical sentences of 11 years and three months. They were sentenced Thursday by U.S. District Judge Charles Lovell in Helena.
The Stines pleaded guilty in June to conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine. Prosecutors say the Stines had been suspected of dealing meth for about 10 years. They were arrested after law enforcement officers made a controlled buy in January.
