One of two Honeycutt brothers entered a guilty plea in Federal Court on Tuesday in the Brainerd Army Store meth case.
Tony Dewayne Honeycutt appeared before Federal Magistrate Court Judge Bill Carter. He pleaded guilty to one count of the indictment dealing with involvement in a conspiracy to sell chemicals knowing they were being used to make meth.
The felony plea requires immediate incarceration in most cases. However, the prosecution did not oppose the continued release of the defendant. His attorney, Steven Sadow, said his wife has some health problems and he is needed to help care for her.
Sentencing was set for Dec. 2 at 9 a.m. He faces up to 10 years in prison, a fine up to $250,000 and possible restitution.
The plea agreement was sealed, and it was not clear whether Tony Honeycutt has agreed to testify against his brother, Terry Michael Honeycutt, who is due to go to trial on Oct. 8.
