A Wood Heights man will spend the next 10 years in prison after working out a plea agreement on Wednesday for selling marijuana.
James D. McMillen, 46, was facing 14 felony counts. Prosecutors dropped 13 of the charges for possession of illegal prescription drugs. Prosecutors said at the time of McMillen’s arrest that it appeared the prescriptions belonged to McMillen’s live-in girlfriend who has some medical issues.
According to the affidavit of probable cause, the Ray County Sheriff’s Department responded to a complaint at McMillen’s residence on Aug. 25 of 2008.
McMillen gave officers consent to search his house where numerous items including narcotics, paraphernalia and cash were found concealed and in the open.
Officers recovered 1124 grams of marijuana, baggies and digital scales.
