Bedford Man Sentenced on Drug Charges

(BEDFORD) – Brady Terry has been sentenced by Lawrence County Superior Court 2 Judge Williams Sleva to 180 days in jail on a charge of possession of a narcotic drug, a Level 6 felony.

Terry, 23, was arrested along with three others on December 28, 2019 by Bedford Police officers on charges of possession of meth, possession of a narcotic drug, unlawful possession of a syringe, and visiting a common nuisance.

Terry plead guilty to possession of a narcotic drug in a negotiated plea deal and the other charges were dropped.

Judge Sleva ordered Terry to serve all 180 days in jail and was given credit for 90 days serviced. He was also fined $185.

Terry was also sentenced on probation charges in two other cases.

Judge Sleva sentenced Terry to 1353 days in jail. He will serve the entire sentence and was given no time for credit service.

Terry will send to a total of 1533 days in jail.

Chief Deputy Bob Cline prosecuted the case for the state. Terry was represented by Chief Deputy Public Defender Bruce Andis.

Terry was arrested with three other people on Saturday, December 28, 2019 after Bedford Police were requested to the 1500 block of 2nd Street after a report of a domestic fight.

Officers arrived and spoke with 26-year-old Tierra Mayhair, who said there was no fight and that no one else was in the home. 

“During that conversation, another female, 24-year-old Kaitlyn Tegarden, walked out and said the people who had been fighting left out the back door,” said Chief Terry Moore. “Tierra then changed her story and let officers inside the house. Officers located in plain view several syringes and could hear footsteps in the attic.”

In the attic, officers found 18-year-old Landyn Adcock and Brady Terry.

Tierra gave consent to search the house and 52 used syringes were located along with other drug paraphernalia, heroin, meth, and a lookalike substance.
