Hager City man gets 18 months prison for drug charge

A Hager City man was sentenced Monday in Pierce County Circuit Court to 18 months prison for maintaining a drug trafficking place.

Jamie N. Tri, 28, was also placed on two years extended supervision by Circuit Court Judge Robert Wing for the Class I felony.

"The fact he was in denial about his drug use until confirmed tests showed it to him and that his daughter was home when drug selling was taking place is irresponsible behavior," Wing said, explaining his sentencing.

Other terms Tri must complete include complying with an alcohol and drug assessment and follow any treatment recommendations, abstain from alcohol and no association with people that deal with illicit or illegal drugs.
