From Decatur County Prosecuting Attorney Nathan Harter
Tyler Hahn pleaded guilty and was sentenced May 23rd by Judge Tim Day in the Decatur Circuit Court. Hahn pleaded guilty to Dealing in Methamphetamine, a Level 2 Felony, and to being an Habitual Offender because of prior felony convictions. The parties entered a plea agreement to a total sentence of 26 years.
The parties agreed that twenty of those years would be served in prison, while two more years will be on home detention and the last four years will be on probation. Judge Day accepted the plea agreement and sentenced Hahn according to the terms of the agreement.
The State, represented by Prosecuting Attorney Nate Harter, noted, “Drug dealing in the quantity that Hahn engaged in is the highest level of dealing Indiana law addresses. Here, Hahn benefits from having cooperated with law enforcement, confessing to what he did.” Hahn had acknowledged working with others to distribute pounds of methamphetamine throughout southeastern Indiana, valued at thousands and thousands of dollars.
Hahn has five prior additional felony cases beginning in 2016. Those include: Offense: Failure to Return to Lawful Detention, Level 6 Felony, Dealing in Marijuana, Level 6 Felon, Possession of Methamphetamine, Level 6 Felony, Failure to Appear, a Level 6 Felony, Possession of Methamphetamine, Level 6 Felony, as well as various misdemeanors.
Decatur County Prosecutor Nate Harter wants to recognize Greensburg Police Detectives Mark Naylor and Mike Colson, GPD Asst. Chief Brandon Meyer, and the Indiana State Police Drug Enforcement Section for their hard work on this case. Said Harter, “It is my hope that drug dealers are watching the sentences being entered in Decatur County and reconsidering whether they want to do business here.”
