CIRCUIT COURT: Lemmon receives 20-year sentence

May 3, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — A Columbia City man who pleaded guilty last month to two meth-related charges received a 20-year sentence in Whitley County Circuit Court Monday.

Joshua Lemmon, 34, was handed a pair of 10-year sentences, to be served concurrently, with none of the time suspended. The two charges to which he admitted his guilt were dealing in methamphetamine and manufacturing methamphetamine.

In his sentencing, Whitley County Circuit Court Judge James Heuer said he would recommend Lemmon for work release and said the sentences could be modified in the future.

“This is a frustrating case for me,” Heuer said. “You have skills and intelligence which show you have the capability of being a productive member of society.”

In his statement, Lemmon apologized to those he had hurt.
