NEW: Sentencing In Meth Lab Case Postponed
A Keezletown man who had chemicals used to make methamphetamine in his vehicle during a traffic stop in Harrisonburg will have to wait at least another month before he finds out how much prison time he will have to serve.
William D. Landes Jr., 48, pleaded guilty on Dec. 16 to two felony counts of manufacturing methamphetamine.
Today, during a hearing in Rockingham County Circuit Court, his defense attorney, Sherwin Jacobs, asked for his client’s sentencing to be postponed so he could have more time to review the pre-sentencing report in the case.
Judge Bruce Albertson scheduled Landes to be sentenced on April 4.
Landes used his vehicle as a mobile meth lab, a tactic drug manufacturers often use to help evade detection by the authorities.
