A Glouster woman has pleaded guilty to a third-degree felony charge of illegal conveyance after being found with methamphetamine “in her person” after being booked into the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail.
A press release from the Athens County Prosecutor’s Office last week did not specify where in her person the drugs were found.
Kyla A. Powell, 33, was sentenced to four years in prison by Athens County Common Pleas Judge Patrick Lang last Wednesday.
Prior to sentencing, Powell had changed her pleas to guilty of one third-degree felony count of illegal conveyance of drugs of abuse onto grounds of a specified governmental facility, and one fifth-degree felony count of permitting drug abuse.
In a press release, Athens County Prosecutor Keller Blackburn said that Powell allowed two others, including her father Ronald, to manufacture methamphetamine in her home while her young son was living with her.
“Upon her arrest, Powell was found to have drugs in her person upon being booked into the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail,” Blackburn said.
In addition to her four-year prison sentence, the release said, Lang ordered three years of post-release control for Powell. Ronald Powell, meanwhile, is scheduled for pre-trial on April 6, while the other person accused of manufacturing methamphetamine in Kyla Powell’s home, Timothy Pastol, is scheduled for pre-trial on April 26. Both have pleaded not guilty.
