A Cutler man charged with having nearly 800 doses of LSD has been sentenced to four years in prison and is not eligible for early release. 

Jeremy Cutshaw, 42, appeared in Athens County Common Pleas Court Wednesday and pleaded guilty to a second-degree felony charge of possession of LSD. Judge L. Alan Goldsberry issued a four-year prison term, all of which is mandatory. Upon his release, Cutshaw will also have his driver's license suspended for a period of five years. 

In January of last year, Cutshaw was pulled over in his vehicle by Athens County Sheriff's Office deputy Lt. John Morris for a traffic violation. During the stop, a canine alerted on the vehicle and a search was conducted. The search revealed an envelope containing 794 unit doses of LSD, a small baggy with white powder, drug paraphernalia, marijuana and more than $2,300 in cash. 

While awaiting trial, Cutshaw tried to have the evidence against him suppressed, claiming it was obtained during an illegal search and seizure. Goldsberry denied the motion.
