Federal prosecutors say a Clay County man who ran a pipeline that brought large quantities of methamphetamine from North Carolina to West Virginia has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.
Hersman was convicted in May for selling methamphetamine.
Officials say law enforcement agents began investigating Hersman's suspected meth distribution scheme in and around Clay County in August 2012.
Hersman was previously convicted in April 1993 of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine and possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.
