DOTHAN, Ala. (AP) - A former Dothan firefighter has been sentenced to four years of probation on drug charges.

The Dothan Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/1wzyxUG ) 42-year-old Elmo Boyd was sentenced Friday by Circuit Court Judge Larry Anderson. Boyd pleaded guilty last year to manufacturing and possessing a controlled substance.

The newspaper reports Boyd was initially sentenced to 12 years and the judge reconsidered a request from Boyd’s attorney for probation. The judge sentenced Boyd to probation after he spent about six months in the Houston County Community Corrections work release program.

Boyd’s attorney John White has said his client never meant to sell meth, but only made it to see if he could. During his sentencing hearing, Boyd told the court he tried making meth after watching the TV show “Breaking Bad.
