Woman pleads guilty to meth charges, opts out of trial

A Sault Ste. Marie woman pled guilty Tuesday to meth-related charges instead of going to trial.

A trial was scheduled to start Thursday in Chippewa County Circuit Court for 23-year-old Morningstar Parish, but instead she pled guilty to maintaining a meth lab, possession of a controlled substance, and maintaining a drug house.

Parish and Christopher Yon, 29, were arrested in Sault Ste. Marie in January 2013 at a home on Andary Avenue.  The Michigan Department of Human Services took a two-year-old out of the house into protective custody.

Yon was sentenced in October, and is serving 9-30 years in prison.

A sentencing date for Parish has not been scheduled yet.
