In a jury trial Aug. 21 at the White County Justice Center, Bobby Wayne Centers, 54, was found guilty of sale and delivery over 26 grams of methamphetamine.
According to Bruce MacLeod, assistant district attorney general, the trial lasted nine hours. The jury for the trial, which was tried by MacLeod and assistant district attorney general Mark Gore, came back with a guilty plea at approximately 6 p.m. the same day.
“Mr. Centers is awaiting a sentencing hearing,” says MacLeod. “He is facing 12 to 20 years in prison.”
Centers, who was out on bond until the trial, is now awaiting a sentencing hearing. The date for that hearing is not known at this time.
“It takes about 45 days for the Tennessee Department of Corrections to complete a presentence report,” said MacLeod. “When that’s complete, he’ll be sentenced.”
