A Colbert, Oklahoma, man thanked Judge Jim Fallon Monday after Fallon sentenced the man to 20 years in prison for possessing 43.5 grams of methamphetamine back in 2017.

Trevor Lewis said he had a significant drug problem back then, explaining the drugs that were found on him were for his personal use.

First Assistant Grayson County District Attorney Kerye Ashmore asked how that could be possible and Lewis explained that he has attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and he was using the drug to treat that disorder. When Ashmore balked at that explanation, Lewis admitted he was just addicted to the drug.

“I just got lost in it,” Lewis said at one point about the drug.

He also said a vixen made him do it. Lewis testified that his girlfriend, who he referred to as his “old lady,” had turned him onto the drug “in a roundabout way.” His father testified that the woman in question was about twice his son’s age and every time he got his son cleaned up and back in church, the woman would come back around and Lewis would go off with her and back to the drugs.

Lewis testified that after picking up five felony charges in seven years, he is done with that woman and the drugs. When Ashmore asked him what he wanted the judge to do with the case, Lewis said he wanted leniency, but admitted he didn’t see that happening.

Lewis testified that he was using about five grams of the drug a day when he was arrested. He was stealing and breaking other laws to obtain the money to support the habit.

Lewis’ attorney John Nix said his client’s father and the courts seem to have done all that they could to help Lewis from “running around like a wild dog.”

Because Lewis was also found to be in possession of a firearm at the time of his arrest, Lewis will have to serve half of his time before he is released.
