KC man sentenced to 17 years for meth distribution

Luis Hernandez, 51, was part of a distribution ring that brought in $809,000, prosecutors say.

A Kansas City man will spend 17 years in prison with no chance of parole for his role in a methamphetamine distribution conspiracy.

Federal prosecutors announced 51-year-old Luis Hernandez’s sentence in a news release Friday. They say he was part of a distribution ring that brought in $809,000 in proceeds.

Hernandez pleaded guilty in July to being part of a conspiracy with four co-defendants that distributed methamphetamine between January 2008 and August 2011.
