Centralia woman pleads guilty to Washington County meth charge

WASHINGTON COUNTY — A 19-year-old Centralia woman pleaded guilty Tuesday in Washington County Court to a meth-related felony charge. She was sentenced to probation, as well as ordered to pay nearly $3,400 in fines and fees.

Myra J. Taylor pleaded guilty to Class 1 felony manufacture of less than 15 grams of meth, and was sentenced to 23 days in jail, with credit for 23 days served, and was ordered to serve 48-months probation, complete drug treatment and pay $3,350 in fines and fees.

In exchange for the guilty plea, the state elected to not pursue prosecution of a Class 2 charge of possessing meth-manufacturing material.

Taylor must complete drug treatment and file with the court proof of completion by December 17.

The charges were originally filed against Taylor on May 18, at which time a warrant was issued for her arrest. She has remained in custody of the Washington County Jail since that time, with bail set at $40,000.
