In a plea agreement Tuesday, Chorley pleaded guilty to one count of criminal possession of a controlled substance, a class A felony, and agreed to spend 6 years in prison followed by 5 years of post-release supervision.

He will also spend an additional 2 and a half years in prison for violating the terms of his probation.

The incident in April wasn't Chorley's first time being arrested for making meth. He was also charged in March 2014 after police found an active one pot meth lab in his vehicle.

Following his court appearance Tuesday, Chorley was sent back to Cortland County Jail. He is scheduled to be sentenced Nov. 17.
