Riddle pleads guilty to meth charges

CLINTON — A Clinton woman pleaded guilty to two methamphetamine-related drug charges on Thursday in Clinton County District Court.

Tera Riddle, 27, said she purchased precursors with the intent to manufacture the drug with her then-boyfriend between October 2013 and April. She appeared alongside attorney John Kies in court where Judge Stuart Werling read her terms of the plea agreement.

Riddle also was charged with conspiracy to manufacture the drug and admitted she obtained Sudafed and lithium batteries to do so. In all, Riddle was charged with three drug-related charges but one was dismissed.

A sentencing date was set for 2 p.m. Aug. 28. Riddle waived her right to a pre-sentence investigation.

Conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine is a Class C felony and carries a maximum sentence of up to 10 years. Possession of a controlled substance — precursor is a Class D felony that has a maximum five year sentence. Fines may be assessed for both charges.
