Brian Back was sentenced in Starke Circuit Court Thursday morning.
He previously pleaded guilty in a plea agreement with the state to an amended count of Dealing in Methamphetamine as a Class B felony. Judge Kim Hall sentenced Back to 13 years in the Department of Corrections with no part of that sentence suspended. If he completes a therapeutic community program while incarcerated, he may petition the court for a modification of his sentence.
Back was arrested in May after Starke County Sheriff’s deputies reportedly found him hiding in a bathroom in the Stay-4-Less motel in Knox where methamphetamine-related paraphernalia and precursors were found.
