A 47-year-old Lincoln man has been given 188 months in federal prison for acquiring an ingredient used to make methamphetamine.
Shawn Bursovsky had pleaded guilty to conspiracy to manufacture meth. Bursovsky was sentenced on Thursday. He also must serve four years of supervised release after he leaves prison.
Prosecutors say Bursovsky was involved in obtaining pseudoephedrine for Mark Skoda, who used the chemical to make meth in Lincoln.
In March Skoda was sentenced to more than 24 years in prison.
