A 35-year-old man from Shawneetown, Illinois is sentenced to 12 in a half years in prison for his role in a meth making operation in southern Illinois. Michael Lovell was accused of making meth in Saline County and Johnson County.

In May of 2011, authorities in Saline County found him passed out in the drivers seat of a car with the motor running, and the car in gear. Officers say they found meth on him at the time.

The following Summer, Lovell was arrested once again for possession of meth and allegedly having the ingredients to make it. Officials say he was given an enhanced sentence because he classified as a "career offender."
