A Pine Creek man who pleaded guilty to drug charges last fall is back in jail as his probation was revoked.
Justin A. Lucas, 38, of 177 Pine Creek, was arrested in Blackey in April 2018 after a passerby reported he was passed out in his car.
He was originally charged with first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance (methamphetamine), first offense, but that charge was amended to first-degree possession of a controlled substance, first offense, as part of a plea deal. He also pleaded guilty to possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana, and public intoxication.
He was sentenced to three years in prison probated for three years. Letcher Circuit Judge James Craft II revoked his probation and sent him back to prison after he admitted to violating the terms of his release, and showed “a complete disregard” for those conditions.
