Times-Tribune Staff Report
An East Bernstadt man could be sentenced to 27 years in prison for manufacturing methamphetamine, according to 27th Judicial Circuit Commonwealth’s Attorney Jackie Steele.
Freddy Scalf, 53, pleaded guilty to manufacturing the drug Thursday.
The charge stems from July 2011 when the Laurel County Sheriff’s Department searched a location where Scalf had erected a tent and found items needed to make the drug. The sheriff’s department went there after Scalf was videotaped making the drug as part of an investigation into meth trafficking.
Steele said Scalf has an “extensive criminal history” dating from 2001 to 2009 with convictions related to methamphetamine, trafficking and possession of a controlled substance.
Sentencing is set for Nov. 16.
Michael D. Pratt, an assistant commonwealth’s attorney, prosecuted the case.
