Three individuals were sentenced in White County Court on Monday according to States Attorney Denton Aud.

41 year old Olivia Miller of Enfield was sentenced to three years on a charge of possession of methamphetamine and three years on a charge of unlawful use of property.  The two sentences will run concurrently, and Miller will be under mandatory supervised release following incarceration.  Both the Carmi Police Department and White County Sheriff’s Department participated in the investigations.

27 year old Austin Heffington of Carmi was sentenced to five years on a charge of forgery and five years on a charge of possession of a controlled substance.  The two sentences will run concurrently, and Heffington will be under mandatory supervised release for one year.  The Carmi Police Department investigated the case, with Grayville Police making the arrest.
