A man who admits using meth since he was 15 faces the possibility of serving 10 years in prison if he does not take advantage of being accepted into drug court.The man, Joshua Floyd, 27, entered a guilty plea before Circuit Court Judge Bart Stanley to the charge of initiating the process to manufacture meth. He was directed to serve 343 days of a 10-year sentence and must pay $2,000 plus court costs. He will be allowed to participate in the drug court program which is an intensive 18-month program which has a much lesser rate of recidivism than does straight incarceration.
