Rocky Mount, VA - A Franklin County man got no jail time and two-years supervised probation for illegal manufacture of alcohol.

Ricky Matherly, 55 pleaded guilty Monday.

Two other charges were dropped in September.

Matherly was charged at the end of a nine month investigation after ABC agents raided a wooded area back in May.

They say they found and destroyed two 800 gallon operational stills and seized 1,600 gallons of mash and more than 180 gallons of untaxed liquor.
