On February 13, 2019 Daryn Kyle King was sentenced to 15 months in prison for possession of methamphetamine. King was arrested in October 2016 after deputies with the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant at King’s residence in Baxter Springs. King, who had two prior felony drug convictions, was remanded into custody following sentencing.

“Kansas sentencing guidelines are designed to give drug users multiple opportunities to get help with their addiction”, says Cherokee County
Attorney Jake Conard. “However, when these individuals continue to break
the law, prison becomes the only option.”
