A Baxter Springs attorney pleaded guilty today to a federal drug charge that could send him to prison for a year.
Christopher Y. Meek, 58, pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful possession of the painkiller hydrocodone.
Authorities learned in 2009 that Meek was obtaining the prescription medication from his clients, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said in a statement today. Meek admitted in his plea that he got the hydrocodone without a prescription.
Meek is set for sentencing May 16 before U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten.
