The defendant, Jimmy Wimley, was sentenced by Circuit Court Judge Bart Stanley to two years probation for the sale hydrocodone pills to the agent during one of the ongoing drug stings.
Specifically the agent said he went to Wimley’s place of business, Jimmy’s Auto Sales, and bought 20 hydrocodone pills for $120. He then met with investigators and turned the pills over to them as evidence.
When Wimley was arrested, officers said they found several tablets including hydrocodone and Alprazolam in one of his pockets and $2,495 cash in the other pocket. Wimley said the money was to pay his employees.
In his statement to lawmen, Wimley told them he was a Christian man and had never sold any pills. He did admit, however, to being on several types of prescription pills.
During sentencing it was pointed out Wimley suffers numerous health problems.
