Timothy Joseph Mace was adjudicated guilty and sentenced today to 10 years in prison, for drug crimes in Charlotte County. He was found guilty at trial in July.

The defendant was sentenced as follows:

Count 1: Sale or Delivery of a Controlled Substance: 10 years in prison as a Habitual Felony Offender, followed by 10 years of probation

Count 2: Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent: 10 years in prison, followed by 5 years of probation

Count 3: Transportation of Drug Paraphernalia: 10 years in prison as a Habitual Felony Offender

The charges are to run concurrently.

The crime happened on August 30, 2019, when Mace sold drugs to a confidential informant during an undercover drug operation being conducted by the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office.

He arranged to meet the person behind a liquor store and then had them come to his home. While there, the defendant sold the confidential informant a baggie of methamphetamine, weighing 1.2 grams.

Assistant State Attorney Scott Patterson prosecuted the case.
