WILKES-BARRE — A 19-year-old woman pleaded guilty to a charge stemming from a raid at a suspected methamphetamine lab last year that left residents of an apartment building shivering in the cold Dec. 10 as law enforcement officials sifted through evidence.


Amanda Musto pleaded guilty to a charge of possession of materials with intent to make methamphetamine Monday. She faces a maximum sentence of seven years in prison and a $13,000 fine. Luzerne County Judge Michael Vough accepted the plea Monday morning and set sentencing for Sept. 10.


Musto, of Nanticoke, was one of three people charged after a raid of Apt. 304 at 104 West Main Street in Plymouth. The others were Robert Jones, 28, and Cheryl Cupp, 44. Court documents list both as living in the apartment that was raided.


Jones and Cupp also appeared before Vough Monday. He set a trial date for Sept. 15.


Initially, Musto was charged with three counts of possession of pre-cursor chemicals with the intent to manufacture methamphetamine, one count of manufacture of methamphetamine, one count of possession of methamphetamine, one count of risking a catastrophe, one count of illegal dumping of methamphetamine waste, one count of criminal conspiracy, one count of possession with the intent to deliver methamphetamine and one count of unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine in a structure where a child under age 18 is present.


Cupp was charged with three counts of possession of pre-cursor chemicals with the intent to manufacture a controlled substance, one count of criminal conspiracy and one count of possession of methamphetamine.
