AG Schmidt: Three meth sentences imposed today total 26 years of prison time

TOPEKA – (October 30, 2013) – Sentences for methamphetamine-related convictions handed down today in two counties will send three men to prison for a total of more than 26 years, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said.

Dale W. Karnes, 41, and Christopher R. Wene, 43, both of Baxter Springs, were each sentenced to 84 months in the Kansas Department of Corrections by Judge A.J. Wachter in Cherokee County District Court. The men each pleaded no contest to a charge of manufacture of a controlled substance in September. The charges stemmed from a 2012 investigation by the Baxter Springs Police Department, Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office and Kansas Bureau of Investigation. Assistant Attorney General Steve Wilhoft of Schmidt’s office prosecuted the cases.

Jose M. Muniz, 31, Garden City, was sentenced to 136 months in the Kansas Department of Corrections by Judge Wendel W. Wurst in Finney County District Court. Muniz pleaded no contest to one felony charge of possession of methamphetamine with intent to sell. Muniz was also sentenced to 12 months in the Finney County Jail after pleading no contest to one count of felony domestic battery. Wurst ordered the sentences to run consecutively. The charges stemmed from investigations earlier this year by the Garden City Police Department and Finney County Sheriff’s Office. Assistant Attorneys General Steve Karrer and Jessica Domme of Schmidt’s office prosecuted the case.
