Three people have been sentenced to federal prison, one for 40 years, for their involvement in a drug ring that distributed methamphetamine in the Wichita Falls area.

Prosecutors announced Tuesday (Aug 27) the three were sentenced the day before after pleading guilty earlier this year to conspiracy with intent to distribute meth. The 40-year term was imposed on 28-year-old Anthony Rueben Johnston. 32-year-old Christina Gail Thompson was sentenced to nearly four years and 20-year-old Rachel Dawn Billen to three years.

Four others also have pleaded guilty to their roles in distributing the drug in various North/West Texas towns, and they’re scheduled to be sentenced over the next few months.

Prosecutors say searches of Johnston’s home revealed names of customers, money they owed, firearms and the drug itself.
