A Baton Rouge man has been sentenced to 15 years in federal prison for trafficking methamphetamine in Ascension and Livingston parishes while armed with a gun, acting U.S. Attorney Corey Amundson said Tuesday.

Quinton Hall, 33, obtained meth from suppliers in Texas and California through the mail and other means and distributed the drug to customers in both parishes, Amundson said.

In connection with his drug crimes, Hall concealed a 9 mm pistol in a hidden compartment behind the stereo of his vehicle, Amundson stated.

Hall was convicted in July by a federal jury and sentenced Monday by Chief U.S. District Judge Brian Jackson.
