Three convicted in Pickens Co. meth trafficking case

Posted: Updated:

Defendants in a meth trafficking case out of Pickens Co. were found guilty Friday, according to solicitor Walt Wilkins.

Michael Levant Mealor and Cynthia Mansell Greenfield were sentenced to nine years in prison. A third defendant, Carol Denise Hayes, was found guilty of consipracy and sentenced to three years in prison.

According to Wilkins, the five-day trial saw evidence from 2011, when Mealor and Greenfield worked with 18 people to make more than 28 grams of meth. Wilkins said the state proved its case through expert testimony and by linking the defendants to the purchase of pseuodphedrine, a drug commonly used in the making of meth.

Wilkins said the jury verdict in Pickens County will help the Thirteenth Circuit find and prosecute criminals who make meth in the future.
