HAMMOND | A Mexican man was sentenced to more than three years in prison for federal methamphetamine dealing charges, according to a judgement filed Monday.

Miguel Chavez was charged with possessing with intent to distribute more than 500 grams of methamphetamine, according to federal court records. The charge stems from a February 2011 traffic stop in Merrillville.

Chavez will receive credit for time already served, according to court documents. He has to participate in a drug treatment program in prison.

Chavez, a Mexican citizen, will be under supervised release for three years after his prison term if he is not deported, according to court documents.
