Probation violation sends Austin man to prison

An Austin man has been sentenced to two one-year prison terms after violating conditions of his probation for felony drug charges.

Juan Irlas Jr., 39, will serve the terms concurrently. He'll receive credit for 209 days served.

The original charges stem from 2010, when Irlas allegedly sold methamphetamine to a police informant at a northwest Austin apartment.

He was convicted in January 2011 of two counts of fifth-degree drug possession.

According to those complaints, police searched the home where Irlas lived, finding a scale, stun gun, marijuana paraphernalia and a pouch with six paper bindles with less than three grams of meth overall.


Numerous other items of meth paraphernalia were found in the room, including torches, syringes and scales, the complaint says. Syringes also were found in other areas.

Irlas also has a fifth-degree drug crime conviction from 1997 in Freeborn County.
