A Hickory man who was arrested as part of an SBI sting has been sentenced to at least 10 years in prison after being convicted Monday on drug charges.
Bobby “Chester” Biddix, 35, was sentenced by Judge H. William Constangy Jr. to between 10 years and 14 years in prison, according to the Catawba County District Attorney’s Office. He had been found guilty of possession and distribution of methamphetamine precursor chemicals and of conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine. He also was convicted of being a habitual felon.
Biddix had been arrested in June and charged with planning to produce and distribute meth. At the time of the arrest, police said Biddix was in possession of meth-producing chemicals several times between July 2012 and February of this year.
The district attorney’s office says Biddix had convictions of indecent liberties with a child in June 1996, obtaining property by false pretense in January 1998, and failure to report an address change by a sex offender in June 2012.
