Meally man sentenced to seven years for meth trafficking

James N. Sisco

A Meally man was sentenced to serve seven years on methamphetamine trafficking charges during his final appearance in Johnson County Circuit Court Friday.

James N. Sisco, 45, of Meally, was sentenced to serve seven years concurrent in two separate cases, both of which originally contained charges for first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance and charged Sisco as a first-degree persistent felony offender.

As part of Sisco’s plea deal, the persistent felony offender charge was dropped from both cases.

Sisco is currently lodged in the Floyd County Detention Center, where he was serving time in relation to a 2015 arrest in which, court documents said, Sisco spent time on the run after stealing a motor vehicle and burning it in Lawrence County.

Sisco was released on parole for these charges in Sept. 2017, and, the indictment said, committed the meth trafficking offenses on Dec. 19 and 21, while he was on parole.

According to court documents, Sisco was served with the indictment warrant for these charges by the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office in September.
