A teen caught with meth on the high school campus has been sentenced to 150 days in jail.
The teen, Jakob S. Farless, 19, entered guilty pleas before Circuit Court Judge Bart Stanley to charges of simple possession of methamphetamine and was ordered to serve 150 days of a three-year sentence, pay $2,000 plus court costs, and perform 12 hours public service work. He also admitted he was in violation of his probation for an earlier conviction for possession of marijuana.
His meth sentence comes after school resource officers found him in possession of meth while on the campus of Warren County High School. Specifically, officer Stephen J. Johnson said Farless was a passenger in a car which was dropping off a student at the school.
Johnson said the meth in question was contained in a small plastic baggie and that it field tested positive for being meth. The bag was found under the seat where Farless was sitting at the time the car was searched. It was not revealed what alerted the resource officer to their particular vehicle.
