WALKER, LA (WAFB) -

A Walker man will spend another 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to meth charges.

James Coutee, 45, was arrested in August 2012 with three other people after investigators say a meth lab was found in a home on Courtney Rd.

At the time of his arrest, Coutee had been on probation for possession of meth and theft.  In a November hearing, the judge revoked Coutee's probation and sentenced him to two five-year terms to run back-to-back.

Coutee pled guilty to running a meth lab for the August 2012 incident.  He was sentenced to 10 years, to run consecutive with the possession of meth and theft sentences, bringing him to a total of 20 years.
