A "career criminal" received a life sentence without parole on Thursday in Spartanburg County, according to Murray Glenn of the solicitor's office.

After a two-day trial, 46-year-old Isaac G. Lyles was found guilty on seven charges and sentenced by Circuit Judge Roger Couch to the life sentence.

Lyles was found guilty of his third-offense of trafficking crack cocaine and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.

During the execution of a search warrant on Oct. 9, 2012, deputies caught Lyles attempting to flee from a home with drugs and a gun in his possession. A bag with over 60 grams of marijuana and 50 grams of cocaine and crack cocaine were found nearby.

"Judge Roger Couch sentenced Lyles in accordance with the state's 2-strike/3-strike law for repeat violent offenders," Glenn said.

Lyles has a criminal record dating back more than 20 years, and has convictions for voluntary manslaughter, assault and battery, and first-degree burglary, according to Glenn.
