A 23-year-old man showed no outward emotion as he stood before Barren Circuit Court Judge Phil Patton on Monday being sentenced to a decade in prison.
David Tyler Pedigo of Glasgow was indicted in late 2011 after selling drugs to confidential informants, and he pleaded guilty in December to multiple drug-related charges in three separate cases in a plea arrangement with former Commonwealth’s Attorney Karen Davis.
Within the three cases, Pedigo was charged with two counts of trafficking in a controlled substance, first degree, first offense, more than or equal to 4 grams cocaine; complicity to traffic in a controlled substance, first degree, first offense, less than 4 grams cocaine; trafficking in marijuana, 8 ounces to 5 pounds, first offense; cultivation of marijuana, five or more plants, first offense; buying or possession of drug paraphernalia, all related to incidents in 2011.
Patton kept with the commonwealth’s six recommended sentences – one for 12 months, three for three years and two for 10 years – to be served concurrently. As part of the arrangement, though, he is eligible for the possibility of shock probation after 180 days.
