Woman gets jail time for meth crimes

MANTORVILLE -- A 33-year-old woman convicted of methamphetamine-related offenses has been sentenced to serve 180 days in jail and complete Dodge County Adult Drug Court if she's accepted into the program.

Carey Sue Allen, 33, was sentenced April 20 in Dodge District Court for attempting to manufacture methamphetamine and two counts of anhydrous ammonia containment. The charges were filed in February 2004 after authorities found items that could be used to make meth at Allen's home, according to a criminal complaint.

During sentencing, Allen also was ordered to pay a fine and surcharge of $1,065, but she may do community work services in lieu of the fine. She must refrain from using or possessing alcohol and other drugs, submit to drug testing, provide a DNA sample, and follow other recommendations made by court services.
