A 50-year-old Deberry, Texas man has been sentenced to federal prison for dealing methamphetamines.

Jimmie Gaston Langston pleaded guilty on Apr. 3 to possession of pseudoephedrine with the intent to manufacture meth and the manufacture of meth on premises where children are present. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison Thursday by U.S. District Judge Michael H. Schneider.

According to court information, Langston purchased cold pills containing pseudoephedrine at a CVS store in Marshall, Texas, as well as additional purchases in Shreveport, LA, to make drugs. The meth was made at Langston’s house where one or more children were present.

Langston was indicted by a federal grand jury on May 11, 2011.

This case was investigated by the Texas Department of Public Safety Criminal Investigations Division and the Panola County Sheriff's Department and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Mary Ann Cozby.
