Woman could get 80 years for meth crimes

A 34-year-old woman in one of South Carolina's regional neighbors has been convicted on a variety of counts in connection with a methamphetamine manufacturing operation. The woman, who was facing drug related charges of manufacturing methamphetamine and another count of conspiracy to produce the drug, was found guilty on Nov. 18.

Sadly, the defendant claims that she was just a bystander in the manufacturing operation. However, she allowed her friends to use the house to make meth. Further, she received a personal share of the product in exchange for the use of the facility.

The woman could face a whopping 80-year prison sentence in connection with the conviction. She will be sentenced on Feb. 12, 2014.

The woman and several co-defendants had been found inside a residence where police officers executed a search warrant related to the drug crimes. Officers say they found waste materials that could be associated with "one-pot" meth cooking methods along with several other incriminating items. A coffee can filled with powder was also located on the premises as well as other chemical components commonly used to manufacture the drug. It is not clear exactly what tipped off the officers to the location of the manufacturing operation.

Drug charges, even those that involve only peripheral involvement, are indeed serious. Think about the fact that this woman could spend eight decades' time in prison for even a limited role in meth manufacturing and distribution. Criminal defendants need the assistance of qualified criminal defense attorneys. Those professionals can help drug defendants learn more about their legal options and protect their rights throughout the entire courtroom experience. From arraignment to sentencing, a criminal defense attorney can provide help for a drug defendant every step of the way.
