An Ephrata woman was given community service for being in possession of methamphetamine. Does the punishment even come close to fitting the crime?


Shayla M. Musselman was arrested in March, and police found her in possession of methamphetamine, to which she pleaded guilty. Musselman could have been given 6-12 months of confinement, but because she pleaded guilty, deputy prosecutor Ed Owens to agree to a 10 days of community service sentence recommendation.

Judge John Antosz also ordered Messelman to have 12 months of community custody and to be evaluated for substance abuse.
