LAPORTE | A LaPorte man on Friday was sentenced in connection with methamphetamine being made in a home where his son begged him to stop.
Adam Tener, 32, received 18 months on work release and over three years probation for Class C felony neglect of a dependent.
In January, police in responding to a complaint, found evidence of a meth lab inside Tener's mobile home on the city's east side. He told police he made some of the meth but most of it was being cooked by his girlfriend, Sabrina Hutson.
Police said his 12-year-old son had begged him to stop due to the strong odor of chemicals in the home from the toxic vapors released during the cooking process.
Hutson, 25, still has charges pending in court. LaPorte County Prosecutor Bob Szilagyi said the child was not harmed by the chemicals and is now living with a grandmother in another state.
