NU Methamphetamine Sentence 11 Dec 13

A New Ulm woman who had been accused of making methamphetamine in her home has been sentenced to 5 years of probation after pleading guilty to a felony charge of storing meth paraphernalia in the presence of a child. Charges of obstructing the legal process and possession of drug paraphernalia against 44 year-old Barbara Kristine Mordah were dismissed in exchange for the guilty plea. Brown County Family Services had received an anonymous report in late July that there had been no electricity in Mordah’s South Bridge Street home for 3 weeks, and that the residents were allegedly making meth and smoking marijuana, and that there was no food. When officers arrived with a search warrant, Mordah reportedly became angry and refused to let police enter the residence and she was eventually arrested. She spent 23 days in jail for the crime.
