A Hannibal man receives a lengthy prison sentence following a guilty plea on methamphetamine possession charges.
Marion County Prosecuting Attorney David Clayton says 35 year old Samuel Workman previously entered a guilty plea and requested a lesser sentence including drug treatment after being accused of possession of 42 gramws of meth following use of a search warrant last week at 1300 Union. Clayton says Workman is a prior and persistent drug offender and faced up to 30 years in prison and that Workman has several prior convictions and prison sentences over the last decade. Clayton says treatment is not appropriate in this case. A state forfeiture civil action has also been filed against Workman to seize proceeds from criminal activity.
