A Pittsburg man was sentenced in a Wichita U.S. District Court on Monday to 157 months, or just over 13 years, in federal prison for distributing methamphetamine.

Mac William Watkins, 36, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute meth, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom’s office said. In his plea, Watkins admitted that in May 2012 he conspired with co-defendants Tammy Baetke and Derek Edwards to distribute meth in Pittsburg.

Edwards previously was sentenced to eight years and nine months and Baetke to five years in federal prison.
