Baxter Springs man gets 8 years prison on meth conviction

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A 44-year-old southeast Kansas man has been sentenced to eight years in prison after being convicted of manufacturing methamphetamine.

The Wichita Eagle reports that Jimmy Lee Riddle was sentenced this week after being convicted in January.

The Kansas attorney general’s office says Riddle’s conviction was the result of investigations by Baxter Springs police, the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office and the Kansas Bureau of investigation.

Authorities have said the Baxter Springs man was making the drug in 2013.

Riddle’s lawyer, Candace Gayoso, was not immediately available for comment on the sentencing.
