Jimmy Hendricks, 26, of Franklin, was sentenced to 24 years in prison Thursday after being convicted by a jury of Level 3 felony dealing methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, unlawful possession of a syringe, carrying a handgun without a permit, and resisting law enforcement, as well as being an habitual offender.

The case originated on June 11, when Shelbyville Police Department officer Jared Scudder noticed Hendricks and another man walking very animatedly, appearing that they were about to fight. Scudder pulled up to check on them, and Hendricks was immediately abrasive with Officer Scudder.
