POINT PLEASANT — Three more pleas were entered in Mason County Circuit Court this week regarding meth busts which took place earlier this year.


According to documents recently filed in the office of Circuit Clerk Bill Withers, appearing before Judge David W. Nibert were:


Sheldon B. Hill, III, 32, Point Pleasant, this week entered a plea of guilty to possession of pseudoephedrine with intent to manufacture methamphetamine. A September grand jury indicted Hill on three counts, including the count he pleaded guilty to as well as operate or attempt to operate a clandestine drug laboratory and manufacture a controlled substance - the latter two counts were dropped as a condition of his plea. Hill is to be sentenced on Dec. 2 for the incident which took place in July. The sentence for possession of pseudoephedrine with intent to manufacture meth is not less than two nor more than 10 years in prison. Hill has remained in the Western Regional Jail since his arrest in July.


Robert E. Lee, 41, Point Pleasant, this week entered a plea of guilty to operate or attempt to operate a clandestine drug laboratory. A September grand jury indicted Lee on three counts, including the count he pleaded guilty to as well as attempt to commit a felony and conspiracy - the latter two counts were dropped as a condition of his plea. Lee’s sentencing is set for Dec. 23 for the incident which took place in May.


In addition, Lee was arrested in another meth case in 2012 and charged with operation of a clandestine drug laboratory and conspiracy to commit a felony after a meth bust at apartments above a downtown Point Pleasant business. Lee eventually accepted a plea agreement in this matter which included one to five years home confinement, court costs and restitution. Lee has remained in the Western Regional Jail since his arrest in May.


Bobbi J. Stranahan, age unreported, Point Pleasant, this week entered a plea of guilty to felony conspiracy. A September grand jury indicted Stranahan on three counts, including the count she pleaded guilty to as well as attempt to commit a felony and operate or attempt to operate a clandestine drug laboratory. Stranahan’s sentencing is on March 10, 2014 for the incident which took place in May. Lee and Stranhan were listed on a joint indictment.


In each hearing, the state was represented by staff from the office of Mason County Prosecuting Attorney Craig Tatterson.
