Woman pleads guilty to bringing child to meth lab

ANDERSON — A woman accused of visiting a methamphetamine lab with her child and helping to supply the cookers pleaded guilty on Monday.

Holly J. Wilson, 29, of Anderson, admitted she helped her husband, William Wilson, and Tony Douglas, both of Anderson, make meth in William Wilson’s home in the 1400 block of Pearl Street on Oct. 3, 2012.

According to police reports, Wilson’s young child was in the home during the incident, so she was also charged with dependent neglect, a Class C felony. As part of the plea agreement, a Class B felony charge of manufacturing meth was dropped. Sentencing will take place in Judge Dennis Carroll’s Madison Circuit Court 6 next month, attorneys agreed Monday.

According to the probable cause affidavit of the incident, Douglas tried to leave the home on a bike when police approached to question the residents. Police reported seeing Douglas toss several meth pills and other controlled substances, which they later recovered, from his pockets.

When police investigated the home, they found William Wilson upstairs with meth and numerous precursors used in meth production. Holly Wilson, who was visiting with her child, was also arrested and charged.

In court Monday, Wilson said the only reason she was there was because the child needs to be supervised during visits with her father.

Douglas and William Wilson already pleaded guilty to meth charges for their part in the lab in January and February, respectively. Douglas received a two-year executed sentence while Wilson was sentenced to 12 years, with six executed in prison.

The Madison County Drug Task Force wants help from the public to bring down meth labs. Tips can be made anonymously. Signs to look for meth manufacturing are a strong ammonia or solvent smell like an auto body shop. The chemicals are highly explosive and fumes are toxic to breathe and will damage internal organs.

If you have any information, call DTF’s direct line at 648-6796. DTF also offers group classes for drug education.
