(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) - A convicted methamphetamine dealer has been sentenced to 13 years in Dearborn County.

Rising Sun resident Richard Main was arrested last October after selling meth and pills to an undercover officer in Dillsboro in April 2018.

The 33-year-old reached a plea agreement with prosecutors as his case went to trial in Dearborn Circuit Court. He pleaded guilty to Dealing in a Narcotic Drug (level 5 felony), Dealing in Methamphetamine (level 5 felony), and to being a habitual offender.

Main was sentenced by Judge James D. Humphrey on Friday, June 28 to 13 years with seven of those year suspended to probation. The rest of that sentence will be served behind bars.
