Mountainburg drug dealer draws convictions in both Crawford and Sebastian counties

A 41-year-old man who has lived in both Mountainburg and Tahlequah was in court in Sebastian County today and drew an eight-year sentence to run concurrently with the time he had already been given in Crawford County on similar charges.

Paul Gene Edgar, who had been sentenced to 11 1/2 years in the ADC by Crawford County Circuit Judge Candice Settle for the Delivery of Meth or Cocaine caught a mostly token eight-year sentence in Sebastian County on Wednesday. He was tagged a Habitual Offender on Possession of a Controlled Substance (Meth or Cocaine) and POssession f Paraphernalia charges.

Since his time was tolled to run concurrently with his Crawford County stretch, the Sebastian County time is basically a clearing of the court docket.

The habitual offender designation is well-earned. Edgar has done considerable prison stretches in the ADC after 2007 and 2016 drug convictions, including a parole revocation after his 2016 crimes. He also had a drug arrest between those convictions that only resulted in a suspended sentence of five years.

After his court appearance on Wednesay he was taken back to the Crawford County Justice Center to await transfer to state prison.
