MOUNT VERNON — A Mount Vernon man was baby-sitting when he sold meth, his attorney said Friday in Knox County Common Pleas Court.

Chase Sherman, 33, was sentenced Friday to 30 months in prison and a $5,000 fine on one count of aggravated trafficking in drugs by Common Pleas Judge Richard Wetzel.

The charge stems from July 11, when Sherman sold meth to a confidential informant working with law enforcement. Knox County Prosecuting Attorney Chip McConville said juveniles were present at the residence at the time.
