James Corbett II

A Plymouth man has been sentenced for manufacturing meth and for exposing a 6-year-old child to his operation.

37-year-old James Corbett II was sentenced Thursday in Marshall County Court. His sentence consists of 10 years imprisonment for manufacturing methamphetamine and three years imprisonment on a separate count of neglect of a dependent.

In April 2013, Corbett admitted he manufactured meth at his home in the 300 block of W. Washington Street.

He also told the court that he exposed a 6-year-old child to the meth-making.

Police arrested Corbett at his Plymouth home. Inside, police found components necessary to make a meth lab. They also found seven "one pot" meth labs, one of which was active.

From interviews, police learned meth was manufactured at Corbett's home on an almost daily basis. Police also say meth was being sold there four or five times a day. They say that is no longer the case.

The child was originally placed under protection of Child Protective Services.
