Dickinson resident Kimberly Peele, 47, was visibly upset as she was sentenced Tuesday morning for her part in a meth-fueled sex incident involving a minor that occurred in March.

Peele was arrested after she was discovered with her husband, Richard Peele, and Dickinson resident Brendin Poirier, 26, along with a 16-year-old girl and methamphetamine, in a room at the Relax Inn in Dickinson. Assistant State’s Attorney James Hope said Richard Peele died sometime in late summer.

Police stated the juvenile later said she had partaken in sexual activity with Kimberly Peele and Poirier in the room while she was high on meth.

The Peeles were charged with the Class C felonies of possession of methamphetamine and possession of meth paraphernalia, as well as the Class A felony of delivering meth to a minor.

Poirier and Kimberly Peele each faced three counts of corruption of a minor, with Richard Peele facing one. All are Class C felonies.

“I should have acted like an adult,” Kimberly said through sobs to retired Southwest District Judge Zane Anderson. “I’m truly sorry that it ever happened.”

Anderson ordered that Peele serve four years with the North Dakota State Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation with credit for time served for the corruption of a minor charges, as well as a concurrent five years imprisonment suspended for seven years for the meth-related charges. During the latter period, she will be on supervised probation.

Peele will also have to register as a sex offender.
