A Dodge City man was sentenced today to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to drug crimes, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said.

Judge E. Leigh Hood today sentenced Acuna to 120 months in the Kansas Department of Corrections. The crimes occurred in Ford and Meade counties between August and November 2016.
