Comments Off on Woman sentenced in connection to Sylvan Beach meth lab


When a 22-year-old woman was sentenced to probation Tuesday for unlawfully making methamphetamine in Sylvan Beach, she promised the judge she would never get involved with drugs again.

“I’m done with that stuff,” Kimberly Tudor said. “I just want to get out of here.”

Tudor had previously pleaded guilty to third-degree unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine in connection to a clandestine meth lab that was discovered in March at the Sylvan Beach residence of her co-defendant, Wallace Edick.

She was sentenced Tuesday in Oneida County Court to five years of probation, with the first six months to be spent in the Oneida County jail.

When Judge Michael L. Dwyer asked Tudor why she was so confident she would be able to stay off drugs, she offered a simple answer.

“My son,” who is 4 months old, Tudor said.

Tudor said she’d like to move to Massachusetts with her older brother, who she said would probably be granted temporary custody of her son until she is able to gain back custody.

As part of her probation, however, Dwyer told Tudor that she must have no contact with the Edick, the father her child, unless he gets a court-order granting him visitation rights.

Meanwhile, Edick currently is behind bars in the same jail where Tudor is now incarcerated.

Edick is facing his own meth-related charges, including third-degree unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine, criminal possession of methamphetamine manufacturing materials and seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

His case is still awaiting Judge Dwyer’s decision to determine whether state police violated Edick’s rights by searching his Sylvan Beach garage without first obtaining a search warrant while Edick was unconscious from a possible drug overdose. Because evidence of meth activity was discovered, Dwyer will have to decide whether any of the drugs should be suppressed.
