The leader of the Killer Beez gang has been sentenced to ten years, five months imprisonment with a minimum non-parole period of five years, five months.
Thirty five-year-old Joshua Masters was convicted of supplying methamphetamine and money laundering.
Masters was arrested in May 2008 and has been in custody since then.
That means he will be eligible for parole in just 15 months' time.
At the High Court at Auckland, Justice Toogood says Masters delayed his sentencing for four years by manipulating the court system, including changing lawyers several times.
He found Masters completely fabricated his evidence, said he was unimpressed with him lying his way through.
