A Winchester man was sentenced to more than six years in federal prison for distributing methamphetamine and selling illegal firearms, according to a press release from U.S. Attorney Robert Duncan, Eastern District of Kentucky.

Adam Ray Dodson, 38, of Winchester, was sentenced to 79 months in federal prison on Monday by United States District Judge Joseph M. Hood for distributing methamphetamine and selling firearms in Clark County in October and November 2017.

Dodson previously pleaded guilty to charges of distribution of 50 grams or more of methamphetamine, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and sale of a firearm to a convicted felon.

Between October and November 2017, Dodson conducted multiple sales of methamphetamine, totaling more than 200 grams in Winchester.

Under federal law, Dodson must serve 85 percent of his sentence.

After serving his sentence, Dodson will be under the supervision of the United States Probation Office for a period of four years.
