DEADWOOD, S.D. (AP) — Two more Spearfish residents have been sentenced for their roles in the illegal and deadly drug trade in the city.
The Black Hills Pioneer reports that 26-year-old Marcus Pelletier was sentenced to serve a year in prison for drug distribution. Thirty-four-year-old Jeffrey Duex was sentenced to 15 days in jail and three years of probation for drug use.
