19 years in prison to be served by convicted drug dealer PDF Print E-mail

An Austin area resident received a sentence of nearly 25 years after his conviction for dealing drugs.

According to the Scott County Prosecutor’s Office, Larry West will be serving over 19 of those years in prison.

West was recently convicted for two counts of dealing methamphetamine (meth). For those offenses, he received a 15-year sentence, with ten years to be served in prison and the remainder on supervised probation.

However, since West was on probation for an earlier offense at the time he sold meth, his probation was revoked, and he was ordered to jail for an additional nine years and 255 days. That sentence represented the period suspended from his earlier sentence when he was convicted in 2005 of the same offense. He was released from prison in 2013 and served some time on supervised probation.

West’s case stems from incidents that began in March, 2017, when Scottsburg police set up a controlled purchase of meth from West. In the first incident, West sold the confidential informant (CI) 15 grams of the illegal substance.

In April, another CI purchased 16 grams of meth from West.

“The Scott County Prosecutor’s Office is sick and tired of people selling drugs in our community. I speak with citizens daily who express the same sentiments,” stated Prosecutor Chris Owens.

He added, “People who sell drugs, especially meth, are a danger to us all, and we will not tolerate it. Our office is dedicated to eliminating these menaces from our county.”

In addition to regular staff, the Prosecutor’s Office has two deputy prosecutors dedicated to eliminating drugs and drug dealers. West’s case was handled by Deputy Prosecutor Amanda Herald. “She plays a vital role in the fight to assure our community comes out on the winning side of this battle,” stated Prosecutor Owens.

The office acknowledged the Scottsburg Police Department and the Probation Department staff for their work in securing West’s sentences.
