WARSAW — Frank Daniels, 35, with addresses on file as both 721 S. Main St., Middlebury, and 220 S. Bronson St., Warsaw, was sentenced in three separate cases in Kosciusko Circuit Court Monday, March 8.
In the first case, Daniels pleaded guilty to dealing methamphetamine, a level 3 felony; and possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon, a level 4 felony.
This case resulted from a narcotics transaction in front of Shamrock Trailer Court, off of Anchorage Road, Warsaw, in September 2017.
Judge Michael Reed sentenced Daniels to five years for each charge at the Indiana Department of Corrections and ordered the sentences to be served concurrently.
Daniels received jail time credit of 920 days in this case.
Daniels accumulated additional charges following a drug interdiction detail conducted by NET 43 in August 2019.
In the second case, Daniels pleaded guilty to dealing methamphetamine, a level 2 felony. He was sentenced to five years at IDOC and given three days of jail time credit. The sentencing in this case was ordered to be served consecutive to the sentence imposed in the first case.
In the third case, Daniels pleaded guilty to possession of a narcotic drug, a level 6 felony. He was sentenced to two years at the Kosciusko County Jail, with the sentence to be served consecutive to the sentences in the other two cases. Judge Reed then ordered this sentence suspended, to be served through formal probation. This sentence will be served last.
Judge Reed recommended that Daniels participate in the Recovery While Incarcerated program and stated there would be no chance of a sentence modification unless Daniels successfully completes RWI and remains conduct clear while in prison.
“I would like to take full responsibility for what I’ve done and get this behind me,” Daniels said.
