PARKERSBURG - One of four men arrested in a raid of a methamphetamine laboratory in July was sentenced Thursday in Wood County Circuit Court.
James Rodney Walters Jr. 30, 1502 1/2 19th St., Parkersburg, pleaded guilty to a charge of operating or attempting to operate a clandestine drug laboratory at 602 Reed St. He was sentenced to two to 10 years in prison. A motion for probation or alternative sentencing was denied by Judge J.D. Beane.
