Friday, December 4, 2009
Two Cape Girardeau women appeared in federal court Thursday in connection with drug charges -- one was sentenced to prison and another pleaded guilty to the charges against her.
Amie Marie Graham, 36, was sentenced before U.S. District Judge Stephen Limbaugh Jr. on one count of conspiracy to possess pseudoephedrine with the intent to manufacture methamphetamine, according to a news release from acting Federal Prosecutor Michael Reap's office.
Graham had previously admitted to investigators that she had bought a large amount of pseudoephedrine from area stores between Sept. 1, 2008, and Feb. 17, 2009, to give to another person who was making methamphetamine from it.
Lindsay Gaye Bloodworth, 25, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Stephen N. Limbaugh Jr. to one felony count of conspiracy to possess pseudoephedrine knowing that it would be used to manufacture methamphetamine.
With the plea, Bloodworth admitted to purchasing a large amount of pseudoephedrine between May 4, 2006, and July 5, 2007 and providing the drug to people using it to make methamphetamine.
Bloodworth now faces a maximum of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine, or both. Sentencing has been set for March 3 in Cape Girardeau.
