A Brunswick man accused of manufacturing methamphetamine was sentenced to one year in prison Thursday by Medina County Common Pleas Judge James L. Kimbler.

Michael Leskin, 43, of the 1200 block of North Carpenter Road, pleaded no contest to the third-degree felony charge of illegal assembly or possession of chemicals for the manufacture of drugs on June 2.

Leskin will be given 60 days of jail credit for time he already served.

Police raided Leskin’s home in August last year after they received a tip that Leskin and his co-defendant, Adam Strader, 28, of Cleveland, were making meth. Strader pleaded no contest to the third-degree felony charge of illegal assembly or possession of chemicals for the manufacture of drugs and entered a no contest plea to two charges of aggravated possession of drugs, a fifth-degree felony, on March 27.

He was sentenced to a year in prison on June 11 by Common Pleas Judge Christopher J. Collier. Strader received five days of jail credit for time served.
