PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A Massachusetts man has been sentenced to six years in prison for his part in a conspiracy to traffic crystal methamphetamine that was orchestrated from the Bristol County House of Corrections.

Fifty-three-year-old Doneri Aguilar Sandoval, of Attleboro, Massachusetts, was sentenced Thursday by a federal judge in Rhode Island. He pleaded guilty in May for the scheme to traffic drugs from California to New England.

Forty-two-year-old Juan Carlos Espejo Sanchez of Providence was being held in jail in Massachusetts in 2012 when he orchestrated the shipment and delivery of the drugs.

Sandoval delivered the drugs to the parking lot of Twin River casino in Lincoln, where he was arrested.

Sanchez earlier pleaded guilty and was sentenced to six years in prison.
