A Canton man, Jimmy Wayne Wampler, has been sentenced to 15 years in prison after being found guilty of trafficking methamphetamine. The conviction followed Wampler being discovered unconscious with 66 grams of methamphetamine, well above the 28-gram threshold for trafficking under Georgia law. Superior Court Judge Tony Baker sentenced Wampler to 30 years, with the first 15 years to be served in confinement and the remainder on probation. As a recidivist offender, he is not eligible for parole during the prison portion of his sentence. Wampler was also fined $200,000 and banished from Cherokee County. He had previous felony convictions related to methamphetamine possession and aggravated stalking. The case was investigated by the Canton Police Department, Cherokee Multi-Agency Narcotics Squad, and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
