Billings man gets almost 16 years for dealing meth

Billings, Montana (AP) October 2010

A 60-year-old man accused of distributing about 32 pounds of methamphetamine in Billings and on the Crow and Northern Cheyenne reservations has been sentenced to nearly 16 years in prison.

U.S. District Judge Jack Shanstrom sentenced George V. Morris of Billings last week to 15 years and eight months, saying the public needs protection from the drug dealer. The Billings Gazette reports that Morris, who pleaded guilty in July to conspiracy to distribute meth, also must forfeit $27,000 in cash and a 2005 Ford F-350 pickup truck.

Prosecutors say he received shipments of meth at his house from Washington suppliers about every month for about four years beginning in 2005. Morris was accused of selling some of the drugs to customers at a junkyard he has near Lame Deer. Prosecutors say he also sent meth to others for further distribution.
