Marion man gets federal prison for meth distribution

A Marion man convicted of conspiracy to distribute 500 grams or more of methamphetamine was sentenced Monday by U.S. District Court Judge Karen E. Schreier.

Larry Wayne Alver, 37, was sentenced to 120 months in custody to be followed by five years of supervised release. He was also ordered to pay a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Alver was indicted by a federal grand jury May 8 of conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance. He pleaded guilty on Sept. 9.

During his involvement in the conspiracy, Alver purchased methamphetamine from a co-conspirator and distributed it. He also facilitated the distribution of methamphetamine by introducing his source of supply to another dealer.
