    Three convicted people learned their fates during sentencings in separate criminal cases conducted on Tuesday, November 3, in Scott Circuit Court.
    Jason D. Arbuckle, 35, Lexington, received the longest sentence. His prison stay will be 30 years for dealing in methamphetamine, a Class A felony.
    Arbuckle may be remembered as the defendant who didn't show up for his own trial on that charge this past August. He was arrested and charged with the felony dealing count in June, 2006, after selling the illegal meth to a female undercover officer with the Indiana State Police. His trial was the first in Scott County held in absentia, without the defendant present. The jury quickly found that Arbuckle was guilty of the charge on August 5. He was located and arrested on August 13. A mental examination was requested by Arbuckle at the end of that month. That was done and submitted to the court in September.
