CAMBRIDGE -- Jeremy Huffman, 37, of rural Altona, has been sentenced to eight years in prison for Class 1 felony methamphetamine manufacturing and Class 3 felony possession of a firearm by a felon.

Henry County Circuit Court Judge Richard Zimmer imposed the sentence on Tuesday following Mr. Huffman's guilty plea to the two counts on Nov. 29.

The charges were filed on March 11, 2011, after the execution of a search warrant by the Black Hawk Area Task Force and Illinois State Police at Mr. Huffman's home at 14848 South County Road, rural Altona.

Mr. Huffman also will have three years mandatory supervised release, and he was ordered to pay court costs, including a $2,000 drug assessment fee.
