ALLEGANY COUNTY, Md. - A Cumberland man was sentenced Tuesday in connection to meth charges, according to the Office of the State's Attorney for Allegany County. 

A judge sentenced Gary Ray Bookheimer, Jr., 50, to 12 years incarceration within the Division of Corrections. 

Court officials say the sentence was a result of a trial held on April 2, 2014, in which Bookheimer was found guilty by a jury of his peers. He was charged with possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, and manufacturing methamphetamine. 

Allegany County State's Attorney Michael O. Twigg stated in a release, "Methamphetamine, and those who choose to sell it in our community are not welcome in Allegany County." 

As you may recall, Bookheimer was in the spotlight in 2009, when he was facing numerous assault charges after attacking his then girlfriend with a hammer.
