Bourbon Woman Sentenced to 10 Years for Manufacturing Meth

A Bourbon woman was sentenced in Marshall County Superior Court 1 on Thursday on a charge of Manufacturing Methamphetamine.

Amy Dawn Banks, 37 pleaded guilty to the charge in a plea agreement with the state. Judge Robert O. Bowen sentenced Banks to 10 years in the Indiana Department of Corrections with no part of the sentence suspended.

Banks admitted that she was manufacturing methamphetamine in a home she shared with others on Main Street in Bourbon. An Indiana State Police officer arrived at the residence with a search warrant and found an active methamphetamine lab in the home, plus a loaded handgun, meth, drug paraphernalia and precursors.
