A Nicholas County woman faces up to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to conspiring to manufacture methamphetamine.
Rachel Petrey, 32, entered the plea Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Charleston.
U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin says that from August 2010 until February 2011, Petrey made meth using a technique known as the "shake and bake" method at various residences in and around the county.
She also taught several others how to cook meth and provided the drug to several people in exchange for their help in obtaining meth-making materials.
Petrey is scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 9.
