Flat Lick man sentenced for separate meth cases

CORBIN — By John L. Ross / Staff Writer

A Flat Lick man received a sentence for two of three separate cases against him Friday.

Virgil Mills, Jr., 38, appeared in Knox County Circuit Court to receive his official sentence.

Mills had three cases before the court Friday for sentencing. One case was dropped – that involved one charge of manufacturing methamphetamine, first offense.

However, the other two cases landed Mills a 12-and-a-half year jail sentence.

The second case convicts him of manufacturing methamphetamine, first offense, receiving stolen property valued under $10,000 and operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

In the third case before the judge he was convicted of manufacturing methamphetamine, first offense, two counts of first-degree wanton endangerment, first-degree fleeing or evading the police on foot, fourth-degree controlled substance endangerment to a child, and buying or possessing drug paraphernalia.

A co-defendant in that case, Elizabeth Sturdivant, 33, also of Flat Lick, was sentenced on Friday.

She received a five-year sentence probated for five years. Her case involved manufacturing methamphetamine, first offense, two counts of first-degree wanton endangerment, first-degree fleeing or evading the police on foot, and fourth-degree controlled substance endangerment to a child.
