Former Montana House majority leader Michael Lange has been sentences to 18 years in prison for drug trafficking.
Lange led the Montana State House of Representatives back in 2007. He was found to be arranging deliveries of meth, ranging from 20 to 50 pounds. It was then sold through a network of 15 to 20 dealers over a six month period.
During his time in the legislature, he supported a measure to give $4 million to an anti-methamphetamine public relations campaign. He had never had any run-ins with the law until 2014, when he was charged with a DUI in California. (source) 12:23 p.m. ET January 19, 2018
