A Hanover man will spend 30 weekends in jail after pleading guilty to drug charges.
George Owen, 35, pleaded guilty to a charge of conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine, a Class B felony.
Owen was arrested by Madison police in October 2012 after an investigation into the production of meth.
During his sentencing hearing, Owen admitted that he provided supplies to manufacture meth at his apartment.
Senior Judge Fred Hoying sentenced Owen to seven years in prison, with a majority of that time to be suspended to probation.
Owen will serve a total of 162 days in jail, including the time he has already served. The remaining time will be served over the course of 30 weekends.
