A 57-year-old man in Oregon is going to prison after he admitted to drugging a group of preteen girls, serving fruit smoothies laced with a prescription sedative to his 12-year-old daughter and her friends during a sleepover party.

Clackamas County Circuit Court Judge Ann Lininger on Monday ordered Michael Meyden to serve a sentence of two years in a state correctional facility, records reviewed by Law&Crime show.

Prior to the sentence being handed down, Meyden pleaded guilty to three counts of felony causing another person to ingest a controlled substance. He faced a maximum possible penalty of 4 1/2 years behind bars.

In exchange for pleading to the three felony counts, prosecutors dropped four counts of application of a Schedule IV controlled substance to another and three counts of delivery of a controlled substance to a minor.

During Monday’s hearing, Meyden took the opportunity to address the court and apologize for his actions, The Associated Press reported.

“My whole life is destroyed,” he told the court. “Everything that was important to me up until that point is gone.”

According to the report, Meyden said that he had planned a sleepover for his daughter and three of her friends, all of whom were 12 years old at the time. The sleepover took place on Aug. 23, 2023, at Meyden’s home in Lake Oswego, Oregon.
