February 13, 2014

COLUMBIA CITY — A man pleaded guilty in Whitley County Circuit Court Monday to dealing a prescription drug.

Frank O. Hibbs, 60, of Liberty Mills, pleaded guilty to one of the two charges against him for dealing in a Schedule I, II or III controlled substance.

According to the terms of a plea agreement Hibbs signed, his executed term of incarceration is not to exceed eight years.

Dealing in a Schedule I, II or III controlled-substance is a Class B felony, punishable by a sentence of six to 20 years. If Hibbs is given a sentence length greater than eight years, that portion of his sentence will be suspended.

As part of the plea agreement, one charge of dealing a Schedule I, II or III controlled substance against Hibbs was dismissed.
