Rosebud man gets nearly 20 years for meth
A South Dakota man was sentenced to nearly 20 years in federal prison for distributing methamphetamine on the Rosebud Sioux Reservation.

Ekueta "Q" Palega, 39, was found guilty in February of conspiracy and possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance. Authorities said he participated in drug sales between January 2002 and December 2006.

Two co-defendants received much lighter prison terms -- 37 months and 24 months -- for their role in the conspiracy..
