Area man sentenced for dealing in methamphetamine

Friday, October 2, 2009

As per terms of a negotiated plea agreement, a Turner man was recently sentenced to the Indiana Department of Correction for dealing in methamphetamine.

On Monday, Galen Dale Boyll, 45, with his defense attorney Kjell Engebretsen and the Clay County Prosecutor's Office entered a plea agreement in Clay Circuit Court.

Boyll was facing charges in two cases stemming from an arrest Oct. 20, 2008, one for a warrant for failure to appear on original charges of dealing methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, receiving stolen property, possession of chemical reagents or precursors with intent to manufacture and a habitual offender charge and a second for dealing methamphetamine and possession of methamphetamine.

As per terms of the agreement, Boyll agreed to provide factual testimony of his guilt pertaining to the class B dealing methamphetamine charge and be sentenced to 14 years (with 4 years suspended and 10 years to be executed) at the DOC.

The prosecutor's office agreed to drop the remaining charges.

Circuit Judge Joseph Trout allowed Boyll credit for 373 days previously served and good time credit if earned.

Upon release, Boyll will be placed on formal probation for 4 years, ordered to obey all laws, pay all fines and fees, report for alcohol/drug counseling, not possess (or consume) alcohol, weapons while on probation and be subject to random drug screens and searches of his person, vehicle or residence. Boyll will also provide a DNA sample to officials.

Boyll was remanded into the custody of the Clay County Justice Center to wait formal processing by the DOC.
