2 sentenced to prison for selling pure meth

Associated PressAugust 29, 2012 

Two Anchorage men have received prison terms for conspiring to distribute methamphetamine.

The U.S. attorney's office said in a release Wednesday that Joshua Yang received just shy of 12 years in prison and James Pascua Jr. earlier received just over 7 1/2 years in the conspiracy. They were sentenced in U.S. District Court in Anchorage.

Prosecutors say the men were arrested after twice selling pure meth to buyers in 2009.
