A Pickens man has been sentenced to spend the next 17 years in jail after he was convicted for trafficking methamphetamine.

Evidence presented by the solicitor's office established that during February of 2017 the Easley Police Department and SLED conducted an ongoing drug investigation into Robin Cater Sweezy, age 64, of Pickens.

Based on that investigation, officers with the Easley Police Department, SLED, and the Pickens County Sheriff's Office, conducted a search on February 22, 2017 at Sweezy's property and found over 100g of methamphetamine.

Sweezy will have to serve at least 85% of the 17 year sentence before he becomes eligible for parole.
