LaBarge meth dealer gets life

by Associated Press

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) A federal judge has sentenced a LaBarge man to serve life in prison on convictions of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine and helping to distribute the drug.

Judge Alan B. Johnson on Friday sentenced Clarence Rex Burnell, 58, of La Barge to life in prison.

U.S. Attorney for Wyoming Kelly Rankin prosecuted the case. Rankin issued a statement saying he asked the judge to impose the life sentence because Burnell had two previous felony drug convictions. Rankin says Burnell and his associates distributed the drug in quantities up to a pound at a time around Wyoming.
