A Manhattan man pleaded no contest to drug charges in Riley County District Court on Monday morning. As KMAN reported last summer, Andre Quinton, Jr. was arrested in July of 2015 for a long list of drug-related offenses including intent to distribute within 1000 feet of a school, possession of narcotics, and domestic battery. Police raided Quinton’s home and found more than 38 grams of methamphetamine packaged to be sold. Quinton was facing a minimum of 46 months in prison and up to $300,000 in fees for his Level Three drug felony.
In Judge David Stutzman’s courtroom, Quinton and his attorney submitted an agreement resulting in Quinton serving 74 months and paying $10,000. Quinton requested sentencing later this spring, and will be allowed to spend time with his three young children before serving his time. Stutzman said during this time, Quinton will be closely supervised at the court’s discretion and be submitted to random drug testing and home visits.
