Plea change hearing set for Mason City woman accused of meth delivery

MASON CITY — A plea change hearing has been scheduled for a Mason City woman accused of methamphetamine delivery charges.

49-year-old Annette Pals was accused of delivering meth to an individual cooperating with law enforcement on three different occasions during September and October of last year. A criminal complaint also states that a large amount of meth, an amount of LSD and an amount of marijuana were found when deputies searched Pals’ home in October. 

Pals was charged with three counts of delivery of methamphetamine and one count of possession of meth with the intent to deliver, each charge being a Class C felony punishable by up to ten years in prison. She was also charged with possession of LSD and possession of marijuana, both serious misdemeanors.

Court records show a plea change hearing has been scheduled for October 2nd. A bench warrant has been issued for Pals’ arrest after an alleged violation of her pretrial release. A report from the Iowa Department of Corrections says Pals preliminarily tested positive for meth on August 23rd.
