HENDERSON COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - On Monday, January 9th, 3rd District Court Judge Mark Calhoon sentenced Michael Andrews McFarlin, 24 of Chandler, to twenty years in the penitentiary after McFarlin pled guilty to Possession of Controlled Substance with Intent to Deliver. 

McFarlin was charged with the first-degree felony offense of manufacturing with intent to deliver a controlled substance (four grams to 200 grams) on June 7th, 2011, after HCSO Narcotics Investigators David Faught and Wick Gabbard obtained a search warrant from Precinct 6 Justice of the Peace Milton Adams on McFarlin's residence in the Sunrise Shores subdivision.

Faught, Gabbard and members of Henderson County Sherriff Ray Nutt's Tactical Team went to the location on Skyline Drive, and executed the warrant.  At the home, investigators found a large quantity of suspected methamphetamine, as well as a firearm.  McFarlin was arrested at the scene and transported to jail.  McFarlin's case was filed with Scott McKee's District Attorney's office and the case was presented to a Henderson County Grand Jury which returned an indictment. 

District Attorney Scott McKee and Assistant District Attorney Bridget Bateman prosecuted the case on behalf of the State.  "McFarlin's sentence is the culmination of many hours of hard work by the Henderson County Drug Enforcement Unit." Said McKee. "Sheriff Nutt and I are not letting up on these offenders and our offices will continue to work together to aggressively investigate and prosecute those that manufacture and distribute narcotics.
