Caregiver for elderly enters guilty plea on drug charges


Julieann McMeechan of Gamaliel was given five years probation and ordered to spend a year in one of the Community Correction Centers in the state after she pled guilty to drug-related charges during a session of Baxter County Circuit Court Thursday.

The 38-year-old McMeechan was arrested in late January when officers went to her residence to conduct a compliance check. McMeechan was on probation at the time for stealing from patients at a local nursing home where she worked as a caregiver.

When officers checked the residence, they reported finding various items of drug paraphernalia, including smoking devices and digital scales.
