A Lufkin man pleaded guilty on two counts of a federal indictment against him, ensuring he will be in prison at least five years.

A grand jury named David Arthur Dunman Jr., 52, in a 66-count indictment in July.

Dunman's attorney, Al Charanza, confirmed Dunman pleaded guilty in counts one, conspiracy to manufacture meth, and count 49, possession of listed chemicals.

According to original court documents, the first count carries a minimum sentence of 10 years. However, Charanza said that document was incorrect and was corrected to five years before the plea hearing. A sentencing will be held at a later date.

In the hearing Monday, Dunman admitted to conspiring with Crystal Leann Keisler, 23, and Deana Sunshine Turner, 35, both of Lufkin, to purchase pseudeophedrine with the intent to make meth.

Count 49 alleges Dunman purchased pseudeophedrine from a Walmart pharmacy in Nacogdoches on July 20, 2010, with the intent to make meth.

Keisler and Turner each pleaded guilty to one charge each of possession of listed chemicals. Their sentencing hearing will also be held at a later date.

Dunman has agreed to forfeit land, a pickup truck, a motorcycle and three different types of guns, which Dunman used to carry out his crime, according to federal court documents.

The sentencing will be determined following a pre-sentence investigation.

"I do believe he's going to show regret because it has ruined him and his family over this matter," Charanza said.
