Women gets meth plea deal

TAHLEQUAH — Prosecutors have entered a plea agreement with a woman arrested late last year for endeavoring to manufacture methamphetamine.

Misty Hayes Paden, 43, of Muskogee, pleaded no contest to her charges and was handed a seven-year suspended sentence, plus fines and court costs. Paden is required to register as a “methamphetamine offender,” and will be supervised by probation and parole. Court records show Paden has been released to Muskogee County authorities.

Paden had been charged with endeavoring to manufacture in Muskogee County earlier in 2013. She was arrested by members of the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office and the District 27 Drug and Violent Crimes Task Force in December 2013. Authorities served a warrant at a home in the Tenkiller Harbor area, and booked Paden into jail, along with 37-year-old Dusty Kayl Skaggs, of Webbers Falls, who has pleaded not guilty.

Investigators said they found two small meth labs while searching the home, as well as a box of products commonly used to cook meth.
