Savanna man sentenced in meth case


Lane and Nathan Green both pleaded guilty to conspiracy to manufacture meth, receiving a sentence of no more than 10 years in prison and to child endangerment and were sentenced to serve no more than five years. McKenrick was ordered to serve as much as five years each for possession of precursors and child endangerment.

Seth Green received a deferred judgement and three years probation each for charges of conspiracy to manufacture meth and possession of precursors. Palmer received a deferred judgment and three years probation for conspiracy to manufacture meth. David Shamp was ordered to serve no more than five years in prison, which was suspended, for possession of meth precursors.

“It’s very, very troubling to me that you appeared to have used methamphetamine before your PSI,” Barrows said.

However, he agreed that the RCF program was unwarranted. Barrows also denied Noel’s request for a deferred judgement, instead sentencing Green to the suspended prison sentence and three years of probation. He also waived the mandatory minimum sentence.

Green was fined $1,000. which was suspended. He was ordered to undergo substance abuse counseling, submit a DNA sample and submit to random urinalysis screening. His driver’s license was suspended for 180 days.

“You are given a chance here, but you are on a pretty short leash,” Barrows said. “You’ve got to get a grip (on his substance abuse problem.)”

A charge of possession of meth precursors was dismissed.
