A former West Texas district attorney who once ran a tough-on-drugs campaign has received an 18-year state prison term to go along with a federal sentence, both on drug-related convictions.

Roach, already in federal prison after pleading guilty and getting five years on a drug-related firearms charge last year, will serve the sentences concurrently.
