HART – A 27-year-old Ludington woman faces up to six months in jail after pleading guilty in 27th Circuit Court Monday, June 17, to methamphetamine possession.

Christine Ann Day, of 2301 William St., also faced charges of operating a meth lab and assault with a dangerous weapon, which were dismissed in a plea agreement.

She will be sentenced to an up-front jail term not to exceed six months, said Oceana County Prosecutor Joseph Bizon. Day also faced charges in 78th District Court, which were dismissed as part of the plea deal.

Meth possession is punishable by up to 10 years in prison. Sentencing guidelines in the case are 0-11 months.

Day testified that on March 29 she was in possession of 1 gram of meth at a house on Fox Road in Golden Township. “Where did you get it?” Judge Robert D. Springstead asked. “Muskegon,” she answered, stating that she paid $20 for it. Day said it was difficult to remember all of the details. “My whole life was kind of a blur back then.”

Her attorney Terry Shaw said Day will enter inpatient rehab immediately after her release from jail.

Sentencing is set for Aug. 26 at 9 a.m.
