Meth Lab Suspect Gets Sentence

The man who police say is responsible for clearing out a Jessamine County Walmart when he was found with a meth lab received nearly a four-decade prison sentence.

According to the Commonwealth Journal, James Prater was sentenced to 38 years in prison in a Pulaski County court for violating terms of his bond.

In November, Prater was found asleep in a Walmart bathroom in Nicholasville with a one-step meth lab. At the time, Prater was involved with another drug case in which he agreed to home incarceration in order to receive a lighter punishment.

On Friday, however, police testified that Prater had removed his bracelet and was under the influence at the time of his November arrest at Walmart.
