Jesse Branham has been sentenced to serve seven and a half years in federal prison after pleading guilty in a meth case.
He appeared before Judge Sandy Mattice.
Authorities said the conspiracy with Ashley Parker-Cassel, Deania Leann Ware and others started in March 2012 and continued until Dec. 29, 2012.
The state meth task force said he purchased 38.4 grams of pseudoephedrine during that time.
Branham was arrested Dec. 29 after officers from the Decatur Police Department and Meigs County Sheriff's Office responded to a domestic disturbance at 5245 Highway 30 in Decatur.
Branham was seen exiting a small outbuilding that belonged to his mother.
The officers said there was a strong chemical odor coming from the outbuilding. Inside, Ms. Parker-Cassel and Ms. Ware were trying to destroy an active meth lab.
Branham later admitted being involved in operation of the meth lab.
