One of two defendants arrested in January on possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute pled guilty Aug. 7 and was sentenced to 20 years.

Shenard Mural Johnson was in Jones County Superior Court to enter a guilty plea to three of the five counts for which he was charged. He received 10 years for the charge of possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute and five years each for two charges of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

The counts will run consecutively for a total of 20 years with the first five years to be served in prison.

Assistant District Attorney Dawn Baskin said Johnson’s previous conviction was for aggravated assault in Bibb County Feb. 23, 2009.

According to a story about Johnson’s most recent arrest in The Jones County News, he was taken into custody as the result of a traffic stop in southern Jones County.

Investigator Robert Reece said Johnson was arrested with Elizabeth Ann Swift, Jan. 16, after being found in possession of methamphetamine.
