spot the errors

Saw a couple of gaffes here (via ROK Drop):

Arrested by the police last year, the 17-year-old student admitted she made a mistake taking that first injection. But the older man wasn’t honest at all with her. “If I knew it was methamphetamine inside that syringe, I would have never done it in the first place.”  

You might see other mistakes, but I see one tense-control error in the first sentence, and one tense error in the final if-conditional sentence. Rewrite everything so the tenses make sense! See you in the comments.
