NORWICH— A Greene woman, who was shot at during a domestic dispute and charged with possessing methamphetamine in the summer of 2013, was sentenced more than a year later.
In Aug. of 2013, Kimberly Haughton was charged with unlawful manufacturing of methamphetamine in the third degree, a class D felony; criminal possession of precursors of methamphetamine, a class E felony; and criminal possession of a controlled substance in the seventh degree, a class A misdemeanor.
It is alleged on Aug. 1 – at approximately 2:30 p.m. – at 309 County Route 7 in the Town of McDonough, Haughton was found to be in possession of three grams of methamphetamine. The controlled substance was found in her pocket book following an investigation of a shooting at the McDonough residence.
Connie B. Hendrickson, 48, Greene, was staying at the McDonough residence when she got into a domestic dispute with her ex-boyfriend, Glenn E. O'Connor, 46, Greene, and Haughton. Hendrickson allegedly fired an SKS rifle at O'Connor and Haughton.
Hendrickson fired six shots total. Three of the shots hit Haughton's vehicle but no one was injured. District Attorney Joseph A. McBride said Haughton was lucky her vehicle stopped the bullets before they hit her.
After the shooting, the Chenango County Sheriff's Office found precursors, solvents and chemical reagents used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine inside Haughton's vehicle. They also found the finished methamphetamine product. Although the findings indicated the preparation for or recent completion of a cook, authorities do not believe Haughton was actively involved in the cook.
