Judge Rules Terry Honeycutt Does Not Owe Any Reimbursement In Brainerd Army Store Case; Brother Had Paid $200,000

Monday, June 16, 2014

Federal Judge Sandy Mattice on Monday ruled that Terry Honeycutt will not have to pay a forfeiture in connection with sales at his family's Brainerd Army Store of a key meth-making ingredient that led to him getting a five-year prison sentence.

His brother, Tony Honeycutt, paid $200,000 to the government. Tony Honeycutt got five months in prison and another five months of home confinement.

Tony Honeycutt pleaded guilty, while Terry Honeycutt went to trial.

Prosecutor Jay Woods said the total amount owed was $269,751.

Judge Mattice said he did not find that the Army Store itself was a criminal enterprise. He said it was making legitimate sales of many other products.

He also said there were some sales of Polar Pure that did not go to meth dealers.
