A Sumner County man was sentenced Friday to more than 25 years in prison after being convicted of methamphetamine and gun charges.
The Kansas attorney general’s office says John David McConnell, 51, of South Haven, was sentenced to 308 months for manufacturing methamphetamine. He was also sentenced to six months for criminal possession of firearm, 11 months for possession of drug precursor, 11 months for possession of methamphetamine, 11 months for possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and six months for possession of marijuana with no tax stamp. The sentences will run concurrently.
A Sumner County jury convicted McConnell of the charges last month.
The charges stemmed from an investigation by the Sumner County Sheriff’s Office, Cowley County Sheriff’s Office, Kansas Bureau of Investigation and Kay County, Okla., Sheriff’s Office.
