Putman County Court Comes Down Hard On Drug Charges

A Grover Hill man was in Put­nam County Court on Wednes­day, where he was hit with the max­i­mum sen­tence he could get on some drug charges. 53 year old David Ranes, who went on trial last month, was given 22 years in prison on charges of engag­ing in a pat­tern of cor­rupt activ­ity; ille­gal man­u­fac­ture of drugs; and ille­gal assem­bly or pos­ses­sion of chem­i­cals for the man­u­fac­ture of drugs. All those charges were seri­ous felonies. Ranes was found guilty of assem­bling chem­i­cals and man­u­fac­tur­ing metham­phet­a­mine, as well as lead­ing oth­ers in a crim­i­nal enter­prise. It wasn’t his first time before a judge… Ranes has a long his­tory of drug– and alcohol-related con­vic­tions over the past 30 years along with a con­vic­tion for a sex offense and assault on a police offi­cer. Ranes was given credit for 115 days already served.
