2/1/2013 10:30:00 AM Windom woman pleads guilty to manufacturing meth
The Windom business owner who was charged with manufacturing methamphetamines in an apartment on the Square has pleaded guilty.
On Wednesday at the Cottonwood County Courthouse, Jennifer Anderson, 36, of Windom pleaded guilty to the manufacture of methamphetamines as well as criminal damage to property. She was represented by John Scholl of the public defender's office.
Anderson is the owner of Studio One Photography at 925 3rd Ave., on the Square's east side. She has an apartment upstairs from the business.
The plea agreement calls for Anderson to serve 74 months in prison, but Anderson's sentence will not be finalized until after a presentence investigation is completed.
The plea agreement also calls for the dismissal of a burglary charge involving damage to a Windom home owned by Jerome Tutje.
The property damage charge is related to an incident involving damage to a sprinkler head in Anderson's jail cell at the Cottonwood County Law Enforcement Center. As a result of that damage, the LEC was flooded, resulting in damage to electronics equipment and other items.
The plea agreement calls for Anderson to pay restitution for both the LEC and Tutje incidents.
