LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A federal judge has approved a measure ordering a Bronson man to a rehabilitation facility as part of his violations of supervised release following a conviction on a meth charge.
Floyd Charles Lout, 42, has been in federal custody since October after authorities filed a revocation motion against him.
A grand jury indicted Lout in 2005 on a charge of possession of a listed chemical, alleging he had pseudeophedrine with the intention of it being used to make meth.
Lout pleaded guilty to the crime in January 2006 and a judge sentenced him to 63 months in federal prison in April 2006, followed by three years of supervised release.
Lout violated a condition of his release by not reporting contact with law enforcement within 72 hours to his probation office.
Judge Keith Giblin signed an order Tuesday, ordering Lout reported directly to a rehabilitation center.
