DALLAS (AP) — A North Texas man has been sentenced to 14 years in prison for distributing for a Mexican drug cartel about 30 kilograms of cocaine per month throughout the U.S.

Octavius Williams was sentenced Monday during a federal court hearing in Dallas.

Federal prosecutors say the 32-year-old worked with associates of the Los Caballeros Templarios Mexican cartel.

Authorities say Williams helped distribute cocaine throughout Dallas, Atlanta, Louisiana, Seattle, Oklahoma, and New York.
