A Rocky Mount will serve 21 months of a 15-year prison sentence for distribution of methamphetamine.
John Terry Scott, 51, was sentenced to five years on each of three distribution offenses, but all except 21 months of the prison time was suspended.
Scott was convicted in January. Through a plea agreement, one charge of possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute was dismissed.
The offenses occurred on April 26 and 27, 2012, when the Franklin County Sheriff's Office organized purchases from Scott.
Scott was also ordered to pay restitution of $400 to the sheriff's office for the money that was used to buy the drugs.
Scott was also sentenced to five years probation after he is released, and he was also ordered to be of good behavior for 15 years.
