A Mitchell man was sentenced Tuesday to three years of probation and 90 days in jail for possessing methamphetamine.

Jeffrey Heidinger, 50, pleaded guilty to the charge, a felony, in November.

Heidinger was ordered to serve 30 days in jail immediately, another 30 days starting Dec. 1, and another 30 days starting Dec. 1, 2015. He was given permission to serve his jail time on weekends.

Judge Tim Bjorkman granted Heidinger a suspended imposition of sentence. A suspended imposition gives offenders the chance to keep a clear record if they follow all terms of probation.
