PARKSLEY, Va. - A man and woman in Accomack County convicted of manufacturing methamphetamine in their mobile home last year will spend several years in prison, according to Accomack County Circuit Clerk, Honorable Judge Samuel H. Cooper Jr.

Joanna Strickland, 26, and her partner William Williams, 27, pleaded guilty last September to manufacturing the illegal drug and to three counts of manufacturing it in the presence of their three children.

Cooper says Williams will spend five years and one month in prison while Strickland will spent four years in prison. They were both sentenced in Accomack County Circuit Court on Thursday by Circuit Judge W. Revell Lewis III.

Strickland and Williams were arrested in Feburary of last year after someone tipped off authorities about suspicious activities at the couple's rented trailer. Authorities say after a search warrant was obtained, officers went to the home on Music Circle and found items indicative of producing and manufacturing meth.
