Centralia Woman Pleads Guilty to One of Six Meth Charges

By Bruce Kropp, WJBD News

A 25-year-old rural Centralia woman has been sentenced in Marion County Court to four years probation after pleading guilty to one of six methamphetamine charges filed against her following a bust at her home in May.  

Jessica Murray of Lakeshore Drive admitted to a charge of unlawful use of property for the manufacture of meth and was placed on four years probation and ordered to pay court costs. In addition, Murray will have to undergo drug and alcohol evaluation and treatment, abstain with testing, and comply with Illinois Department of Children and Family Services recommendations.  Charges of possession of meth manufacturing material, possession of a meth precursor, disposal of meth manufacturing waste, meth related child endangerment and possession of meth were all dropped as part of the plea.  

Murray was one of three people arrested when Marion County Sheriff's deputies allegedly found various items used to manufacture meth, empty baggie corners and meth foil and and electronic scale when going to their home after receiving a tip about meth manufacturing taking place at the home.  Three children, two, four and five years old were reportedly in the home.
