SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - A man that authorities say controlled
a methamphetamine distribution ring operating out of Sacramento
will have to serve another 23 years in prison, on top of a 17-year
sentence he's already serving.

After pleading guilty in June to conspiring to distribute
methamphetamine, federal prosecutors say Miguel Ruiz-Bravo was
sentenced to 23 years and four months Wednesday.

The 39-year-old Ruiz-Bravo was already serving 17 years on state
charges after pleading guilty to drug charges in a 2006 case.

A spokeswoman at the U.S. Attorney's office in Sacramento says
Ruiz-Bravo will have to complete his state term before he begins
serving time on the federal charges.

Ruiz-Bravo first gained the attention of authorities in 2003
when U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration agents discovered a
methamphetamine laboratory in the Tehama County town of Corning.
