Rural Baxter Springs man sentenced in meth distribution case

Timothy Leon Sargent, 60, of rural Baxter Springs was sentenced in Cherokee County District Court earlier this week to 111 months incarceration after pleading guilty to Possessing Methamphetamine with Intent to Distribute.

The prison sentence stems from a May, 2022 traffic stop conducted by the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office, where a search of the vehicle driven by Sargent resulted in the discovery and seizure of a considerable amount of methamphetamine.

Sargent was prosecuted by the Cherokee County Attorney’s Office.
