Terry C. Zimmerman, 36, of Marion, was sentenced in federal court for conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine, said U.S. Attorney Stephen Wigginton

Zimmerman, who had pleaded guilty, was sentenced to 240 months in prison, 10 years supervised release and fined $200.

The offense occurred between 2008 and January 30, 2012, in Williamson, Jackson, Saline, and Franklin counties. The court found Zimmerman was responsible for the manufacture of more than one kilogram of methamphetamine. The district judge further found that Zimmerman’s conduct created a substantial risk of harm to human life, when Zimmerman drove recklessly through a residential neighborhood and crashed into a Mount Vernon police car while Zimmerman had a meth lab in his vehicle.

Zimmerman’s sentence also was enhanced because he had a prior felony convic-tion.
