A verdict has been reached in the trial of Alfred Higdon.

Higdon’s trial was held Wednesday in Starke Circuit Court and took only one day to complete.

Higdon was charged with Possession of Methamphetamine and Possession of Marijuana from an incident stemming from April of last year. Knox police officers had conducted an investigation into methamphetamine production and as a result of that investigation, officers arrested Higdon along with Shari Melton. A separate jury found her guilty of possession of methamphetamine and possession of marijuana. She’s due to be sentenced on Feb. 27.

In just under two hours, a jury found Higdon guilty on the charge of Possession of Methamphetamine and not guilty on the charge of Possession of Marijuana. Four witnesses testified for the State and no witnesses were called for the defense.

Higdon will be sentenced on Thursday, March 13 at 11:30 a.m. in Starke Circuit Court.
