Clemons Sentenced on Methamphetamine Charge

A ten-year prison sentence was handed down to a Knox man in Marshall Superior Court No. 1.

Tony Clemons, Jr., 36, pleaded guilty in a plea agreement with the state to a charge of conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine. He admitted that he assisted in the manufacture of methamphetamine on multiple occasions at an 8th Road address.

Clemons had been on parole from a previous conviction of burglary from another county and failed a drug test previously administered by his parole officer, according to a news release from the Marshall County Prosecutor’s office. Police went to the 8th Road address in July and found a burn pile with remnants of methamphetamine labs. Officers applied for a search warrant. Once the search warrant was executed, officers found items associated with manufacturing methamphetamine.

Judge Robert O. Bowen accepted the plea agreement which called for a ten year sentence in the Indiana Department of Correction on the charge of conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine. No part of the sentence was suspended.
