Former Custodian Sentenced For Making Meth Inside School

Last updated on Thursday, February 28, 2013

(OAKLAND CITY) - A former custodian is headed to prison for six years after pleading guilty to making meth inside a school.

Michael Shafer pleaded guilty last month to manufacturing meth. Shafer's attorney told the court his client has struggled with addiction for years.

The 43-year-old was arrested in December 2011 after authorities found an explosion-prone "one-pot" method of making meth in a storage area on the main campus of the East Gibson School Corporation in Oakland City.

Attorney Jon Brinson told the judge that Shafer is "stable, regular, one of those decent people who happens to be addicted to methamphetamine."
