Mitchell woman accused of selling meth convicted of misdemeanor
A Mitchell woman originally arrested on methamphetamine distribution charges will not serve prison time, a Davison County court determined on April 18.
Lisa Musgrave, 42, pleaded guilty to and was convicted of driving without a license, a Class 2 misdemeanor. She was sentenced to 30 days in jail with 25 days suspended and credit for five days served, and she was ordered to pay $180 in fees.
Musgrave was one of three people in a car arrested the night of March 5. According to court documents, the Lincoln Town Car, driven by Musgrave, was stopped without a front license plate near the intersection of Douglas Avenue and Iowa Street in Mitchell.
While looking in her glove compartment, Musgrave allegedly took out a pair of gloves with a glass pipe containing a white powdery substance inside it.
In addition to a package of methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), a dietary supplement often mixed with methamphetamine by drug dealers, police reportedly found inside the vehicle about eight ounces of methamphetamine, marijuana, various paraphernalia containing either methamphetamine or marijuana residue, dozens of small plastic bags, lighters, butane torches, eight cell phones and an Amazon Kindle.
Musgrave, 41-year-old Franklin Vermillion and 35-year-old Nathan Sarha, all of Mitchell, were all charged with possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, possession of a controlled substance in schedules I or II, possession of two ounces of marijuana or less and use or possession of drug paraphernalia.
Musgrave was also charged with the charge of which she was convicted, and Sarha and Vermillion, whose cases are still pending, were also given an additional charge each.
