MARSHALL, Texas (KETK) – A Morris County man has been sentenced after pleading guilty to federal drug trafficking violations.

According to the United States Eastern District of Texas, Michael Wood, 36, of Daingerfield, plead guilty back in May to possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.
