VAN WERT — A Delphos man was sentenced to a five-year prison term Monday morning in Van Wert County Court of Common Pleas.
Matt Brown, 52, was sentenced on a first-degree felony drug possession charge. Along with the five-year prison term, Brown must also pay a mandatory fine of $10,000 in addition to court costs. Judge Charles D. Steele gave Brown credit for 28 days already served in custody on this charge.
A 2001 Oldsmobile used in the commission of the crime was also forfeited as a result of the sentence.
Brown’s attorney had asked for a delay in sentencing due to a need for medical treatment, but that motion was denied.
