  • Two people accused in a North Dakota methamphetamine ring have received identical 18-year prison sentences.
    Cassandra Kasowski and Al Johnson are among 11 people charged in federal court with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute a controlled substance. They pleaded guilty in July.
    Prosecutors say the conspiracy was led by brothers Juan and David Cerna. It moved 8 pounds of meth and an unspecified amount of marijuana from Texas to North Dakota and Minnesota. Juan Cerna allegedly collected money for David Cerna to pay for the drugs out of Texas.
    Juan Cerna was sentenced in February to 18½ years in prison.
