Brian G. Mey pleaded guilty earlier this month to Class 1 felony manufacture of less than 15 grams of methamphetamine, in exchange for having Class 2 felony charges of meth-related child endangerment and possession of less than 15 grams of meth precursors dismissed.

Mey was arrested in October, after a traffic stop in Flora led to a property search and the discovery of meth and meth manufacturing.

Two others from Edgewood, 41-year-old Dawn Doty, and 43-year-old David Yingst, were arrested along with Mey.
Doty pleaded guilty last month to Class 2 felony disposal of meth manufacturing waste and was sentenced three years probation. Yingst pleaded guilty last month to Class 1 felony meth manufacturing and was sentenced to eight years in prison.
