GRUNDY, Va. — A Buchanan County man has been sentenced to more than 20 years in prison for distribution of controlled substances and violating probation.

Michael Allen Keen, 54, of Maxie, Va. was sentenced to 22 years in prison. He had previously pleaded guilty to distribution of hydrocodone on two separate dates in June and July 2011, according to a statement by Commonwealth’s Attorney Gerald Arrington released this morning.
