MISSOULA – A Montana man was sentenced to more than 16 years in federal prison for taking up his son’s methamphetamine and heroin distribution operation.
Allan Roy Goodman, 43, was sentenced Thursday on eight charges including drug distribution, retaliating against a witness and firearm offenses, The Missoulian reports.
U.S. District Judge Donald Molloy sentenced Goodman to 195 months in federal prison followed by 10 years of supervised release.
Goodman was indicted in October and convicted in December following an investigation by federal, state and local authorities.
Confidential informants told authorities Goodman had become a heroin and meth supplier in Missoula.
The informants said he took over the operation from his son, Stephen Goodman, who was sentenced to nearly six years in federal prison for drug distribution two years ago, court records said.
Allan Goodman was indicted in December on a charge of assaulting another inmate he believed to be an informant while at the Crossroads Correctional Center near Shelby.
Allan Goodman plans to file an appeal, court records said.
His attorney, Timothy Bechtold, was granted a motion to withdraw as defense counsel.
