A Campbellsville man has pleaded guilty to selling cocaine and could spend almost a decade in prison for his crimes.

Jeffrey DeWayne Mitchell, 28, of Scott Terrace Apartments, Apt. 8, appeared before Taylor Circuit Court Judge Doughlas M. George on Tuesday, Dec. 2 during regular motion hour proceedings.

Mitchell pleaded guilty in three separates cases to three counts of first-degree selling cocaine.

The prosecutor has recommended that Mitchell be sentenced to eight years in prison to be served at the same time as a Green County sentence he is currently serving and pay $300 in restitution to the Campbellsville Police Department Drug Elimination Fund.

Formal sentencing is set for Dec. 16. Court records also list Mitchell's address as 110 Highway 88 in Greensburg.

Also on George's docket:

u Marion Dale Fisher, aka Marion Moss, 28, of 647 Carter Brothers Road in Hodgenville pleaded guilty to theft by unlawful taking more than $300 and alcohol intoxication. A charge of being a second-degree persistent felony offender was dismissed.

The prosecutor has recommended that Fisher receive a five-year sentence and complete at least six months of an in-house drug treatment program.

According to court records, Fisher was accused of shoplifting at Wal-Mart Supercenter.
