The Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals has overturned a methamphetamine-related guilty plea and 14-year prison sentence of a Garfield County woman.

Angela M. Wolf was sentenced after pleading guilty in 2011 to buying pseudoephedrine after being convicted in 2005 of possession of pseudoephedrine with the intent to manufacture meth.

A 2010 state law prohibits those convicted of meth-related crimes from buying pseudoephedrine — a key ingredient in making meth.

Thursday's ruling agreed with Wolf's argument that she had no criminal intent and didn't know she was prohibited from buying pseudoephedrine — an otherwise legal purchase.

The ruling says Wolf was not told by the state that she was subject to the law prohibiting those with prior meth convictions from buying pseudoephedrine and that prosecutors agreed she had no criminal intent.
