The sentence was handed down after a federal trial earlier in the year.

Prosecutors say Hamm was part of an investigation into 12 overdoses, one of which resulted in the death of a Montgomery County resident.

The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office says more sentences will be handed down in the future from the same case.
