Witthus was given credit for 127 days already served as part of his sentence handed down by District Judge Donald Spilseth in Kandiyohi County District Court. Witthus pleaded guilty to the charge in August.

The charge was filed after May 4, 2012, when the informant purchased the meth from Witthus while parked in the Wal-Mart Supercenter lot in Willmar.
