HAMMOND | A DeMotte man was sentenced to 41 months in prison for dealing heroin, the U.S. attorney's office said Friday.

Brandon Earl, 31, received the sentence after pleading guilty to conspiracy to possess heroin with the intent to distribute the controlled substance.

Earl and eight others were charged with participation in a heroin ring operating in the Newton County area after an investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration, said Mary Hatton, a spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney's office.

U.S. District Senior Judge Rudy Lozano also imposed three years of supervised release on Earl after his release from prison.
