Cable was one of four people arrested in April at 411 N. Parker St., Warsaw, for manufacturing methamphetamine. With a plea agreement, however, Cable’s crime was reduced to a class D felony charge of possession of methamphetamine.
Cable, along with Trever Hanlon, 36, Claypool; Hanlon’s wife, Marisa Yvonne Hanlon, 39, Claypool; and Gary William Golday, 44, Warsaw, were arrested when police acted on a tip and staked out an apartment where it was alleged methamphetamine was being manufactured.
In court, Cable spoke to Judge Rex Reed saying, “I admitted to this and I’m guilty of possession of meth, but I’m asking the court to take into consideration if I can placed on probation so I can get out and get a job. I’m from Illinois and if I can’t get out (now) and get a job, I’ll get out in the wintertime with no job, no clothes and I’ll be homeless. I’m just trying to get up and do right, your honor.”
But the judge didn’t accept Cable’s plea. Reed replied, “I would go along with your request if there was some assurance you’d not come back to Indiana, but that’s not been the case. Mr. Cable, you have a long history (of crime) in Jackson County, Ill., and some pretty serious offenses here in Kosciusko County, Newton County. It looks to me if you really wanted to get a job you’ve had ample opportunity to do so.”
The judge also noted that he will make sure Cable has a winter coat and warm clothing upon his release from jail.
Cable was recognized for 184 days jail time credit and was sentenced to 1 year in the county jail. He will also be required to pay court costs and fines.
