TWIN FALLS -- A 22-year-old Twin Falls man has been sentenced to four years in federal prison for conspiring to distribute oxycodone in south-central Idaho.

The Times-News reports James Toliver Latham was sentenced Tuesday by U.S. District Judge Edward Lodge in Boise.  

Prosecutors say Latham, Ryan Simmons, Troy Sabrosky and Chapin, all of Twin Falls, shuttled oxycodone pills from the Salt Lake City area to sell in Twin Falls. They were charged in April and all have reached plea agreements.

Statements from Latham's co-defendants and criminal informants allege Latham sold up to 100 oxycodone pills in Twin Falls per month for around $80 each.

Oxycodone is a narcotic that is used to treat moderate and severe levels of pain and can be extremely addictive.
