Woman faces up to 76 years in meth case


The Associated Press



VICKSBURG -- Warren County prosecutors say a Bolton woman faces up to 76 years in prison after being convicted Tuesday on methamphetamine charges. 


The Vicksburg Post reports Kimberly Whitehead was convicted of possession of methamphetamine and possession of precursor chemicals with intent to manufacture meth following a two-day trial. She will be sentenced April 17. 


Prosecutors say Whitehead's possible maximum sentence-- 60 years for the possession of precursors and 16 years for the possession of more than 1.1 gram of meth -- can be doubled because she has a previous meth conviction in Louisiana. 


A co-defendant, Randall Shane Hulett, pleaded guilty in August. He was sentenced to three years and eight years' probation. 


Whitehead and Hulett were arrested in 2012 after investigators found an active meth laboratory behind her home.
