Man Sentenced In Meth Cooking Case

A nine-year prison sentence was handed down on Thursday in Marshall County Superior Court for a Bremen man accused of cooking methamphetamine.

31-year-old Jerald Standifer received the sentence after being arrested in October of 2014. Officers allegedly located two one-pot meth labs in a car Standifer was driving on U.S. 31 near U.S. 30. Three others were arrested in the incident.

According to information released from the Marshall County Prosecutor’s office, Sheriff’s Deputies allegedly found cold packs, a bag of rock salt, and a plastic bottle of white residue. Those items are considered part of the meth making process.

Standifer pleaded guilty to the charge of manufacturing methamphetamine after a plea agreement was reached. Several remaining counts were dismissed.

Changes in the Indiana Legislature could make Standifer’s sentence to 6.75 years instead of 5 years under the old system.
