The Record: Action from law enforcement and courts

June 27, 2001

Leavenworth County District Court

A Tonganoxie woman, who was charged in connection with a methamphetamine lab discovered at a local motel, was given a 24-month probation term. Julie Godfrey was arrested Jan. 12 after Leavenworth County sheriff's officers discovered a meth lab in a room Godfrey shared with her husband and son at the Sunset Inn, 205 U.S. Highway 24-40. Last week, she was sentenced to 15 months in prison for possession of methamphetamine with intent to sell and to 12 months in jail for endangering a child. Her probation term is on the condition that she enter and successfully complete an in-patient drug treatment program, according to David Melton, a prosecutor in the Leavenworth County attorney's office.
