One of seven people arrested during a drug sweep in Tippecanoe in January has been sentenced to over a decade in prison after he pleaded guilty recently to two counts of dealing methamphetamine.

Marshall Superior Court I Judge Robert Bowen sentenced Brent W. Hessler, 25, of Bremen, to 12 years in prison after Hessler pleaded guilty in late November. The sentence was stipulated as part of a plea agreement with the Marshall County Prosecutor’s Office.
