Potts Sentenced

Posted on 20th December 2013 at 16:36

Former Longview car dealer Sidney Potts could be essentially spending the rest of his life in prison, after being sentenced to 34 years behind bars for dealing meth. Today’s Daily News reports on the sentencing of the 62 year-old, following his conviction for running a huge local meth distribution system. In August of last year, drug agents raided Potts Family Motors, where they seized $10,000 worth of meth, 25 vehicles and more than $33,000 in cash. Earlier this month, Potts was convicted on four counts of meth delivery and one count of meth possession. Superior Court Judge Michael Evans says that it’s clear that Potts poses a hazard to the community, and has “no doubt” that he would continue to sell drugs if he were out on the street. In fact, Evans says that it’s possible that Potts may continue to try and sell drugs while he’s incarcerated. Potts speaks with disdain about the entire proceeding, claiming misconduct by police, prosecutors and the judge, and plans to appeal both the conviction and the sentence.
