WALHALLA, SC -

A man from Oconee County was found guilty on several drug charges and sentenced to 16 years in jail.

Tenth Circuit Solicitor Chrissy Adams stated that Dan Lavert Temple, 41, of Seneca, was found guilty of possession of crack cocaine and possession of xanax. Judge Alex Macaulay sentenced Temple to 10 years for the cocaine charge, one year for the xanax possession and revoked his five years of probation from a previous sentence and ordered him to serve them consecutively.

Temple was arrested after police officers from the Seneca Police Department and Oconee County Sheriff's deputies executed a search warrant on July 25, 2012, at the Town and Country Motel in Seneca. Officers discovered a large quantity crack cocaine and xanax and subsequently arrested Temple.

Adams stated that Temple has a lengthy criminal history that dates back to 1989 and includes prior drug convictions, property crimes and voluntary manslaughter.
