More guilty pleas in recent meth cases


McKenrick was unwilling to release her before her sentencing, which he set for 9 a.m. Dec. 5. Spooner’s sentencing will be at 2 p.m. Dec. 5. Johnson’s next pre-trial conference is set for 9 a.m. Nov. 21.

John R. Lessard, 28, 702 Second St., Camanche, also pleaded guilty to conspiracy to manufacture meth and possession of manufacturing. The second charge is a serious misdemeanor, carrying as much as one year in prison and a fine of between $315 and $1,850.

According to court documents, Lessard was arrested after Camanche police executed a narcotics search warrant at his residence. The affidavit indicates that Lessard cooperated and led police to a back room where officers found syringes, two-hitter pipes and several clear plastic baggies with residue on them. Tylenol Sinus pills — which contain pseudoephedrine — were found as well.

According to the affidavit, he stated that he and Kyle Humlick manufactured meth in Humlick’s garage. Humlick was sentenced last week and given a deferred judgment. Lessard’s sentencing is set for 9 a.m. Dec. 5.
