The last of three defendants accused of running a meth lab in Norwalk has pleaded guilty to charges of possession of meth, and attempted child endangering.

Allen Mobberly will be sentenced next month. Mobberly was arrested in March, after Norwalk police discovered a meth lab inside a Bouscay Avenue apartment. His three-year-old son was in the apartment. Two co-defendants, James Arthur II of New Haven, and Paul Prince of Mansfield are each serving seven years in prison.
