Newman is Prison Bound

Newman; Prison Bound


A Carmi man is facing fifteen years in prison following his conviction on methamphetamine related charges earlier this month.

White County State’s Attorney Denton Aud told WROY/WRUL News that 59 year old Charles Newman of Carmi was sentenced in White County Court Wednesday to fifteen years in prison on a charge of possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver a Class X felony.
Newman will served three years mandatory supervised release following his incarceration.

Newman was arrested this past March by Carmi police, after they executed a search warrant. Newman was in possession of 50 grams of crystal methamphetamine with the intent to deliver the drug.

Another Carmi man, Kenneth Brown was arrested at the same time,  and he is expected to be sentenced in the near future.

Brian Shinkle represented Newman.

The honorable Judge T. Scott Webb presided over the case.
