October 31, 2018

MugShot_Wesley HenryWesley Henry, 29, of Plymouth and formerly of Texas, was sentenced by agreement on October 24, in Marshall Superior Court No. 1.  Henry will serve 10 years imprisonment at the Indiana Department of Correction after pleading guilty to one count of Level 3 Dealing Methamphetamine and 6 years for one count of Level 4 Dealing Methamphetamine.  Pursuant to Indiana sentencing laws the two cases will run concurrently (or at the same time).  The lower level remaining counts were dismissed in exchange for his admission of guilt as a well as a Level 6 pending matter.  Judge Robert O. Bowen approved the agreement between Chief Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Tami Napier and defense attorney Joe Simanski.

In open court, Henry admitted that in 2017 he sold methamphetamine in Marshall County to a confidential informant.

Prosecuting Attorney Nelson Chipman praised the outstanding work of undercover detectives.  The Marshall County Undercover Narcotics Investigation Team works in cooperation with, and under the supervision of the Prosecutor’s Office to finalize charges against methamphetamine dealers like Henry.  Chipman emphasized that methamphetamine dealing accounts for a significant amount of drug abuse, overdoses and property crimes in our community so it is critically important to detect, investigate, capture and prosecute cases of this nature.
