A Nathalie man was sentenced Thursday in Halifax County Circuit Court to serve two years and six months in prison for distributing or selling for a profit a schedule I or II controlled substance, possession of a schedule I or II controlled substance and violating good behavior terms after entering into a plea agreement with the commonwealth.

Pursuant to the plea agreement, Judge Joel Cunningham sentenced Christopher Marcus Duffer to serve 15 years in prison for the drug convictions but suspended all but two years conditioned on his good behavior for 10 years.
