DOTHAN, Ala. (AP) — A former Houston County sheriff's deputy will serve a 30-year prison sentence after he pleaded guilty to manufacture and possession of meth.

The Dothan Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/12D6Cbg ) that Circuit Court Judge Kevin Moulton sentenced 36-year-old Michael Howard Spivey to the prison term Monday afternoon. The sentence was handed down shortly after he pleaded guilty to felony second-degree manufacture of a controlled substance and felony unlawful possession of a controlled substance.

Houston County sheriff's deputies arrested Spivey in May 2011.

District Attorney Doug Valeska said the arrest came about as a result of deputies finding Spivey asleep behind the steering wheel of a pickup truck at the gas pump of a closed gas station on U.S. 231 South.
