PROVO — A jury convicted a man Tuesday of distributing methamphetamine near an elementary school.

Michael Tanner, 44, was convicted in 4th District Court of five counts of distribution of methamphetamine in a drug-free zone, each charge a first-degree felony.

Five different times in October 2006, the Utah County Major Crimes Task Force arranged drug buys from Tanner through a police informant.

Tanner will be sentenced on Nov. 28 and faces the possibility of life in prison on each case.

He also has several other drug-related cases still pending in 4th District Court.
