Wilkes-Barre Man Sentenced On Meth Charges

November 30, 2018

SCRANTON — A Wilkes-Barre man has been sentenced to nearly four years in prison for conspiring to deal methamphetamine, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Shawn Melleski, 27, was sentenced Wednesday to 46 months in prison, prosecutors said.

Prosecutors said Melleski pleaded guilty to conspiring to manufacture and distribute at least 50 grams of crystal meth between June 2016 and June 2017. He also admitted helping to run a meth lab in the basement of a Wilkes-Barre home inhabited by four children, prosecutors said.

U.S. District Court Judge A. Richard Caputo imposed the sentence, ordering Melleski to serve three years of probation upon his release from prison.
