Woman pleads guilty to having 165 grams of meth, illegal gun
JEFFERSON CITY - A woman pleaded guilty Tuesday to having meth and illegally having a gun.
United States Attorney Tammy Dickinson said 39-year-old Sangria Dawn Mueller from Linn pleaded guilty, admitting she had meth in Osage County on Feb. 20, 2014, with the intent to distribute it.
Dickinson said Mueller also admitted she had a handgun on the same day. Mueller has three prior felony convictions for possession of a controlled substance and a prior felony conviction for driving while revoked. It's illegal for anyone who has been convicted of a felony to be in possession of any gun or ammunition.
Dickinson said law enforcement searched Mueller's home Feb. 20, 2014, and found a box of ammunition that had three bags of meth totaling 165 grams as well as a gun in the top drawer of a bedroom dresser.
Mueller could face up to 30 years in federal prison without parole and a fine up to $1,250,000.
