Plymouth Man Sentenced to 12 Years in Prison

Michael Scott Weaver was sentenced to 12 years in the Indiana Department of Corrections in a hearing in Marshall County Superior Court 1 Thursday. He pleaded guilty in a plea agreement with the state to a charge of Dealing in Methamphetamine.

Judge Robert O. Bowen handed down the maximum sentence outlined in the plea agreement.

Weaver, 27 of Plymouth, was questioned by Chief Deputy Prosecutor Nelson E. Chipman during the sentencing hearing and Weaver admitted that he sold methamphetamine to a confidential informant on Jan. 23, 2012. He also stated that he has five prior drug related convictions.

Chipman noted that Weaver has been sentenced to spend more years in jail than years he’s spent being an adult.
