Jury: Man received meth in the mail

A Brookhaven man was sentenced Monday in Lincoln County Circuit Court to serve 25 years for drug trafficking.

A jury last week found that Michael Guss Jr., 27, of 4111 South Washington St., received drugs through the U.S. Postal Service. He was found guilty Wednesday of unlawfully trafficking more than 30 grams of methamphetamine on or about Dec. 3, 2015.

Judge David Strong sentenced Guss into the custody of the Mississippi Department of Corrections for 25 years to serve followed by five years of post-release supervision. Because of the amount of drugs involved, Guss will serve 10 years day-for-day without eligibility for suspension or parole during that time.
