Fort Mill man who sold meth near school sentenced to 15 years

A Fort Mill man with drug and other convictions dating back two decades was sentenced to 15 years in prison this week after pleading guilty to possession and distribution of methamphetamine near a school.

Ronald Eugene Honeycutt, 40, sold meth out of his house on Vista Road before narcotics officers executing a search warrant found Honeycutt with drugs and scales and paraphernalia, said Jennifer Colton, 16th Circuit assistant solicitor.

Honeycutt was convicted of possession of cocaine with intent to distribute in 2011 after convictions for assault, domestic violence, burglary, and other charges.
