Bremen man ordered to serve 10 years

PLYMOUTH - A Bremen man received a maximum sentence in Marshall Superior Court I on Wednesday.

Shawn E. Brown, 27, of Bremen was sentenced Wednesday by Judge Robert O. Bowen to 10 years imprisonment for manufacturing methamphetamine and an additional year of imprisonment for resisting law enforcement.

Brown admitted that on Feb. 15 of this year he along with several other persons were cooking pseudoephedrine based products into methamphetamine at the Country Place Apartments on West Madison Street in Plymouth. The property is a family housing complex adjacent to a public park, both factors of which enhance the seriousness of the offense to a Class A felony, according to prosecutors.

Brown, through a plea agreement, pleaded to a Class B felony. He also pleaded guilty to the offense of resisting law enforcement, a Class A misdemeanor, and received the maximum sentence allowed under law of one year of imprisonment.

Brown was ordered to serve 10 years at the Indiana Department of Corrections for the manufacturing methamphetamine charge, and one year imprisonment for the resisting law enforcement charge.
