United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Lake Andes, South Dakota, man convicted of Distribution of a Controlled Substance was sentenced on July 21, 2014, by U.S. District Judge Karen E. Schreier.

Michael Todd Andrews, age 42, was sentenced to 120 months in custody, three years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Andrews was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
