Newton man convicted on meth charges

NEWTON – A Catawba County man was sentenced to nearly four years in prison Monday after being convicted on four methamphetamine-related charges, according to the district attorney’s office.

William Emory Skeens, 27, of Newton, was found guilty of manufacturing meth, conspiracy to manufacture meth, and two counts of possession and distributing methamphetamine precursors (materials).

Prosecutors say tips from the public led Newton police to arrest Skeens in April 2012. He was sentenced to between 45 and 66 months in prison.
