A Montana man named Walter Jack White has been sentenced to more than 12 years in federal prison for dealing methamphetamine.
U.S. District Judge Donald Molloy sentenced White on Monday to nine years for possession of meth for distribution followed by three-and-a-half years on weapons charges, The Billings Gazette reported.
Molloy held White responsible for the distribution of 32 and-a-half pounds of meth, a quantity he called "extraordinary."
"He ended up getting shot by his son," Molloy said. "Thirty two-and-a-half pounds of methamphetamine coupled with guns and violence is as about as serious as you can get."
White, 53, told Molloy he got addicted to meth and when he tried to get out of selling it, suppliers threatened him.
White shares his name with the lead character of the Emmy Award-winning cable TV show "Breaking Bad". On the show Walter White, played by actor Bryan Cranston, is a teacher who turns to cooking and dealing meth.
