The county attorney said this was just the second time in the past six years that his office has sought the habitual criminal enhancement, which requires two previous convictions and sentences of at least a year in the state penitentiary.

While Crawford acknowledged he had the drugs when he was arrested, he told the court he didn't believe he should spend the next 10 years in prison for a small amount of methamphetamine.

The judge replied that he didn't have any choice since Crawford failed to address his drug addiction following the previous two convictions.
