A Gaylord man has been sentenced to over 7 years in prison for selling methamphetamine. 51-year-old Jose Luis Acevedo was convicted on a felony 1st-degree drug sales count earlier this week after selling around 30-grams of meth to a drug task force undercover agent on 3 different occasions in November, February and March. He was arrested after the most recent sale last month. Acevedo was sentenced to 86 months in the Minnesota Correctional Facility in St. Cloud, but will be eligible for supervised release after about 57 months, or nearly 5 years.
