LUDINGTON – A 39-year-old Ludington woman who was arrested on drug charges after allowing her 10-year-old daughter and another girl to camp at the Ludington Walmart last December pleaded guilty to cocaine possession less than 25 grams and third-offense habitual offender in 51st Circuit Court Tuesday, March 5.

Xaviera Clarice Stockwell was found with drugs on her after Mason County sheriff’s deputies were called to Walmart for two 10-year-old girls found “camping” in the store overnight. They were participating in a challenge posted on social media in which people sleep inside large stores such as Walmart, previously said Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole.

Cole said Stockwell, who is the mother of one of the girls, took them to the store around 2 a.m. When she returned to meet deputies following the complaint, she had drugs on her and was arrested at the scene.

In exchange for Stockwell’s plea, charges of oxycodone possession less than 25 grams and fourth-offense habitual offender were dismissed.

Her plea agreement calls for serving 30 days in jail of a one-year discretionary term; inpatient treatment; a restricted driver’s license for one year; and she must follow all recommendations of the Department of Health and Human Services regarding child care.

Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola said Stockwell has previous convictions of assault with a dangerous weapon, prisoner possessing contraband and false report of a felony

Sentencing is set for April 9 at 1:45 p.m.
