Fidal Abdeljawad was sentenced Thursday after being convicted in May 2017 of charges in a 2015 indictment involving trafficking in plant material coated with psychoactive drugs that mimic the active ingredient of marijuana.

The U.S. Attorney's Office for New Mexico says the investigation began when federal drug agents learned of trafficking involving a smoke shop owned by Abdeljawad.

A co-defendant also was convicted in the case and sentenced to four years in prison.
