(ANGOLA) - An Angola man who was arrested in January of 2013 in a pair of I.M.A.G.E. Drug Task Force undercover cases was given a total community corrections sentence of four years on Monday in Steuben Circuit Court after he entered guilty pleas to Class C felony charges of Dealing In a Schedule IV Controlled Substance and Illegal Possession of a Controlled Substance on May 19th. 44-year-old Michael Everson was charged in connection with alleged undercover transactions in September of 2012 which involved nearly 165 grams of marijuana along with xanax and vikadin pills.
He was given consecutive two year sentences on the two charges he admitted his guilt to. Five other charges in the two cases filed against him were dismissed.
Everson was among those called to the stand in an effort to convince Judge Allen Wheat that he was a good father to his children, had a steady job and has stayed out of trouble since his arrest. In ordering him to serve his executed time on community corrections, Judge Wheat admonished Everson to look at his family and warned him to not come before him again.
