Glenville man sentenced to 25 years of probation

Published 10:58 pm Wednesday, September 12, 2018

A Glenville man who sold 14 grams of methamphetamine in an undercover operation in December was placed on probation for 25 years Tuesday in Faribault County District Court.

Joshua William Clark

Joshua William Clark, 42, was sentenced after he pleaded guilty in July to one count of second-degree drug sale. He was given credit for 163 days served in the file and was given a stayed sentence of more than 5 1/2 years in prison while he serves probation.

While on probation, Clark will be expected to not possess or use alcohol or drugs, submit to random testing and follow other court requirements.

Court documents state Clark was charged after the South Central Drug Task Force and a confidential informant again arranged to purchase meth from Clark Dec. 7. In that incident, 14.4 grams of meth was sold for $700 at a Bricelyn business.

Clark was charged with one count of first-degree drug sale, but that charge was reduced.

In a separate file, Clark was given credit for 90 days served in jail for one count of misdemeanor theft.
