A two day trial ended Tuesday afternoon in a guilty verdict and prison time for a Newberry man accused of manufacturing methamphetamines.

Vernon Jacob Livingston, Jr., 57, of Newberry, was found guilty after a jury deliberated for less than an hour on Tuesday. New 8th Judicial Circuit Solicitor David Stumbo and Deputy Solicitor Dale Scott handled the case for the state. The verdict marks Stumbo’s first courtroom victory since taking office.

After the jury returned their verdict, Circuit Court Judge Frank R. Addy, Jr. handed down a sentence of 12 years in prison, suspended to six years in prison followed by three years of probation.

Livingston was arrested on Jan. 31, 2012, after he was found in possession of numerous items used in the manufacturing of methamphetamines.

Scott said that the conviction was aided by “outstanding work by the Newberry County Sheriff’s Office, in particular Sergeant Nick Bouknight, and Lieutenant Robert Dennis.”

“I’m pleased that there is another drug dealer off the streets,” Stumbo said. “We will continue to fight to clean up our communities and make the four counties in the 8th circuit a safe place to raise our children.”
