65-year-old goes to prison for using methamphetamine
With only a few months left to go before his probation expired, a 65-year-old man was ordered to serve out a prison term after he used methamphetamine.
Jimmie L. Reimann told District Judge Tod Young that he happened to be behind the wheel when he was under the influence.
Young asked if Reimann’s driving under the influence charge could be heard in East Fork Justice Court sooner.
Reimann was ordered to serve the 12-48 month sentence he received for being under the influence in July 2014.
He said he had used methamphetamine for years and that he relapsed.
“I’d done a good job, but the pain is so bad and I couldn’t stand it.”
He received 79 days time served.
