GULFPORT -- A member of the Black Gangsta Disciples street gang will serve nearly 22 years in prison for his involvement in a conspiracy to distribute meth in George County.
Senon Guzman, 31, of Pasadena, Texas, was also ordered Tuesday to serve five years of post-release supervision and pay $25,000 in fines.
Guzman had failed to show up for his initial sentencing on the drug conspiracy charge in August, but was picked up Sept. 1 in Texas after the judge issued a warrant for his arrest.
Authorities in Houston had arrested Guzman in January in the meth case. He was released on a $75,000 bond, but then entered a guilty plea in March.
