Judge Plummer then suspended three years to be serviced on supervised probation. Sullivan was given credit for 32 days served.

Sullivan was arrested in October 2021, after a Bedford Police officer stopped the vehicle he was a passenger in on 24th Street after he learned the vehicle had a false or fictitious license plate. The officer noticed Devin Sullivan was nervous and fidgety.

Sullivan was wanted on a warrant for failure to appear and was detained.

Sullivan was then transported to the Lawrence County Jail. At the jail, the officer noticed a plastic baggy in his back seat that contained four smaller baggies of crystal meth. The total amount of meth found was 16.75 grams.
