CROMWELL — A Cromwell woman was sentenced in Kosciusko County Circuit Court Monday, March 19, on charges related to methamphetamine.
Lindsay Raye Housman, 30, 11194 North Honeycomb Lane, Cromwell, was found guilty on charges of possession of methamphetamine, a level 6 felony; unlawful possession of a syringe, a level 6 felony; dealing methamphetamine, a level 5 felony; and intimidation, a level 6 felony. The charges were related to three different cases.
According to the affidavit of probable cause, on Sept. 7, the Kosciusko County Drug Task Force conducted a controlled purchase of methamphetamine. Housman was provided funds in exchange for at least one gram of methamphetamine.
For the charges of possession of methamphetamine and unlawful possession of syringe, Judge Michael Reed sentenced Housman to one year in the Indiana Department of Corrections for each of the charges, with the sentences to be served concurrently but consecutive to the other two cases. Housman was given jail time credit of three days.
Regarding the charge of dealing methamphetamine, Housman received a sentence of three years in the IDOC, with jail time credit of 75 days as well as credit for days spent with electronic home monitoring, plus credit for the time served between January 2018 through March 2018. For the charge of intimidation, Reed sentenced Housman to one year in IDOC.
Reed stated that if Housman successfully completes a clinically approved substance abuse treatment program while in IDOC and remains conduct clear, he will consider modifying the sentence so that Housman can serve a portion of her sentence in a residential recovery facility or through a work release program.
Pursuant to the plea agreement, all remaining charges were dismissed.
