An Adams man was sentenced Tuesday in Jefferson County Court to five years’ probation for illegally providing another person with a prescription drug.

John M. Merideth, 33, address not available, was also sentenced to an unspecified amount of time served at the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building for a Sept. 21 guilty plea to fifth-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance. He admitted that on July 19 he gave or sold Lorcet, a brand name for hydrocodone, to another person in Adams.
