NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - A Nacogdoches man charged with several meth-related offenses accepted a 15-year prison sentence after pleading guilty on Friday.

Travis Austin Bailey, 26, pleaded guilty to two counts of possession of a controlled substance and four counts of bail jumping in District Judge Campbell Cox's courtroom. In exchange for the guilty plea, prosecutors dropped charges of delivery of a controlled substance.

Bailey was first arrested in Aug. 2010 during a meth sweep by the Nacogdoches County Pct. 4 Constable's Office.

In January, Nacogdoches Police arrested Bailey after he was caught driving a motorcycle without a license. Police found meth on Bailey during the stop.

And later in January, Constable Jason Bridges obtained a warrant for his arrest again after his office found meth in his apartment.

Bailey was believed to be on the run, but was arrested earlier this month after he was found hiding in a woman's apartment.
