A ten year sentence was handed down to a Marshall County man in Marshall County Superior Court 1 on Thursday.
Judge Robert O. Bowen accepted a plea agreement between the defendant and the state and sentenced David N. Weirick, 54 of Burr Oak, to 10 years on a charge of Manufacturing Methamphetamine, a Class B felony. Weirick admitted in court that he manufactured the drug in his garage located behind his home on State Road 17 in Burr Oak.
No part of Weirick’s 10-year sentence was suspended. As part of the plea agreement, Weirick will be subject to purposeful incarceration which will give him priority entry into intensive drug treatment while incarcerated. If he successfully completes a program, he may petition the court for modification of his sentence.
He has been in the Marshall County Jail since his arrest on Jan. 15.
