WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) — Aaron Christian Wirtz, 37, a familiar face who appeared in local car commercials on local television outlets, was sentenced by a judge on Tuesday.
Wirtz pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to distribute >50 grams of methamphetamine on Dec. 21, 2021. He was sentenced to 72 months in prison and five years of supervised release.

He pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute >50 grams of methamphetamine as a part of a plea deal, and the other three charges were dropped.
