WORTHINGTON — Ainoi Manila, 44, was sentenced in Nobles County Court this week, one month after a jury found him guilty of first-degree possession of a controlled substance, a felony-level offense.

Manila, of Adrian, was arrested in February 2021 after law enforcement found 62 grams of methamphetamine in his possession while executing a search warrant of an Adrian residence. Manila was charged with first-degree drug sale and first-degree drug possession, both felonies that each carry a maximum possible sentence of 30 years in prison and/or a $1 million fine, though the drug sale charge was dismissed. Two other individuals were arrested during the incident.

Manila was sentenced to 85 months in prison, as per the sentencing guidelines, with credit for 285 days served at the time of his sentencing. He will also be required to pay $85 in fees.
