BAXTER SPRINGS, Kan. - Local attorney Chris Meek on Friday in U.S. District Court in Wichita pleaded guilty to misdemeanor possession of the prescription painkiller hydrocodone.

Felony drug charges filed against him by the U.S. attorney's office will be dismissed when Meek is sentenced on May 16, according to the plea agreement on file in federal court. The agreement also states that the prosecution will recommend a sentence at the low end of the guidelines at the time.
Meek is a former Cherokee County attorney, serving as county prosecutor from January 1985 to January 1989. He has served in Europe on the defense teams of two accused war criminals from the former Yugoslavia.
A federal grand jury in October handed up an indictment accusing Meek of felony aiding and abetting the manufacture of marijuana and maintaining a premises for the purpose of manufacturing marijuana on March 14, 2006. The misdemeanor charge of possession of hydrocodone was based on a Sept. 1, 2009, incident.
INFORMANT
According to court documents, the Kansas Bureau of Investigation in 2008 recruited as a confidential informant a woman who had hired Meek in a child-custody matter. The informant reportedly had told agents that she had provided Meek with prescription drugs instead of payment for his service.
The KBI on Sept. 1, 2009, provided the informant with hydrocodone for a scheduled appointment with Meek at his Baxter Springs office. Court documents state that when Meek asked the informant if she had "any good medicine," the informant gave the pill bottle to Meek and he placed it in a desk drawer. Meek was arrested after the informant left the building.
Meek acknowledged in the plea agreement that he possessed 25 hydrocodone tablets without a prescription.
The 2006 charges related to a house belonging to Meek in rural Galena, where Kenneth Endicott was growing marijuana.
...
Federal agents made efforts at the time to determine whether Meek had any knowledge of Endicott's activity.
...
Meek's attorney, Billy Rork, said the possibility that Meek could keep his law license wasn't a consideration in making the plea.
...
Meek said in the plea agreement he would cooperate with investigators with the disciplinary board.
