By

One of two brothers accused of operating a meth lab will likely spend the next eight years behind bars.

Jerry Flannery was sentenced in a Franklin County Court to 12 years in prison and four years suspended to probation, according to the Brookville American-Democrat.

Judge Steven J. Cox also ordered Flannery to pay $2,000 in fines to the Indiana State Police for the cost of cleaning up the meth lab involved in the case.

Flannery previously pleaded guilty to Manufacturing methamphetamine and Illegal possession of precursors, both felony charges.

The newspaper is reporting that during the plea hearing, Flannery admitted to being involved in the meth operation, however claimed his brother, Benny Flannery, was the actual ‘primary’ cooker of the drug.

Benny Flannery is awaiting trial for the incident, which he is facing four felony charges that could lead to a prison sentence of over 20 years, if convicted. The trial is set for June 30.

He is facing additional legal trouble, as he was arrested and charged in connection to another alleged meth lab while he was out on bond.
