(Stillwater, Okla.) — A Cushing woman — who was placed on probation two weeks ago for possession of methamphetamine — was arraigned Monday on a new charge of possessing methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia in Cushing on Saturday.

Kerri Lynn McKinney, 36, remains jailed on $15,000 bail pending her return to court Friday, a sheriff’s spokesman told KUSH Tuesday afternoon.

She allegedly had methamphetamine and two hypodermic syringes on Saturday when she was driving under suspension in the 1500 block of E. Moses Street in Cushing, according to her three-count charge.

Two weeks ago, she admitted possessing methamphetamine and a clear plastic baggy containing the drug in May in Cushing, court records show.

She was given a three-year deferred sentence except 30 days in the county jail which she had already served, court records show.

She was also ordered by District Judge Phillip Corley to have a substance abuse evaluation and comply with any recommended follow-up.

She was also ordered to pay for the cost of her incarceration, a $1,000 fine, a $150 state crime bureau laboratory fee and a $100 contribution to the District Attorney’s Drug Fund.

She was also ordered to perform 150 hours of community service.

In that case in May, while she was being booked out of the Cushing City Jail to be transported by the Payne County Sheriff’s Department, support operations manager Diane Barnett found a plastic baggy containing methamphetamine in her property, court records show.

McKinney said that she did not know anything about it or how it got into her property, Cushing Police Detective Adam Harp wrote in an affidavit in the May case.

“Kerri said that she has been to a lot of different places and that anyone could have placed it there. I asked Kerri if it is possible that someone could have put it inside her purse and she said probably.

“Kerri said that she has not done meth for the past seven years. Kerri said that she still currently hangs out with people that use meth,” the detective wrote in his affidavit in May.

She had previously been convicted of possessing marijuana in 2011 in Payne County, court records show.

If convicted of her new drug charges filed Monday, McKinney could be incarcerated for 21 years and fined $21,000, court records show.
