Mother sentenced in family meth lab case
ALEDO — A Keithsburg woman was sentenced Tuesday to three years in prison for her role in a family meth lab operation. Chrystal Millage, 50, had pleaded guilty to a Class 2 felony meth pre-cursor charge and received her punishment Tuesday in Mercer County Circuit Court. She is the last of three defendants to be sentenced in the case.
Her husband, William Millage, 53, received an eight-year prison term last September after pleading guilty to a Class 1 felony of meth manufacturing and a Class 1 felony of possession of anhydrous ammonia. A Class 2 felony and three Class X meth-related charges were dismissed as part of his negotiated plea.
The couple’s son, Matthew Millage, 33, also pleaded guilty to a Class 2 felony meth pre-cursor charge and was sentenced to 179 days in the Mercer County Jail and placed on four years of probation.
The charges were filed after an active meth lab was found in the Millage home at 1008 Adams Street in Keithsburg in October 2007.
