Murfreesboro man sentenced on drug charges



NASHVILLE – A Murfreesboro man accused of selling methamphetamine to a confidential informant entered a guilty plea to a charge stemming from the incident Wednesday in Howard County Circuit Court.
Jeremy Rankins, 34, was sentenced to 10 years in the Arkansas Department of Correction with four suspended on a charge of delivery of a controlled substance. The prison term is set to run concurrent with other charges from Pike County and he was also ordered to pay court costs plus a drug assessment fee.
Court documents indicate that the charge against Rankins is the result of an undercover operation conducted in August of last year during which the suspect allegedly sold a gram of the controlled substance for $100. The affidavit of arrest attached to Rankins’s case file indicates that the informant involved in the arrest picked up the suspect at a Kelly Street residence in Murfreesboro before traveling to the Pine View apartments in Nashville, where the sale is said to have taken place.
Rankins is already facing a 72 month sentence from Pike County Circuit Court that stems from a March conviction on charges of possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and furnishing, possessing or using prohibited articles.
Court records indicate Rankins is currently an inmate at Pike County Jail.
