Micky BunceCOLUMBUS – (October 26, 2012) – A Cherokee County man will spend more than 16 years in prison after pleading no contest to methamphetamine charges, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said.

Micky W. Bunce, 44, of Weir, was sentenced Friday to 200 months in the Kansas Department of Corrections. Judge Oliver Kent Lynch handed down the sentence in Cherokee County District Court. Bunce pleaded no contest earlier this month to charges of conspiracy to manufacture a controlled substance; possession of ephedrine, pseudoephedrine and lithium metal; use of drug paraphernalia; and possession of methamphetamine.

The charges stemmed from an investigation by the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office and Kansas Bureau of Investigation. Assistant Attorney General Steve Wilhoft of Schmidt’s Office prosecuted the case.
