WARSAW — A Claypool woman was sentenced to four years at the Indiana Department of Corrections in Kosciusko County Circuit Court Thursday, Dec. 13.
Hannah Lynn Rogers, 31, 102 W. Noah St., Claypool, pleaded guilty to dealing methamphetamine, a level 4 felony; possession of methamphetamine, a level 6 felony; driving while suspended, a class A misdemeanor; and possession of paraphernalia, a class C misdemeanor. The charges are from two separate cases.
According to the affidavit of probable cause, on May 26, an officer with the Warsaw Police Department witnessed a purchase of methamphetamine. Rogers was seen dealing 1.9 grams of methamphetamine to an individual in exchange for money.
In court today, Rogers’ attorney, John Barrett, told Judge Michael Reed that Rogers will be incarcerated until October 2019 on sentencing imposed in other cases. Due to this, Barrett requested that Rogers be allowed to transition to some type of treatment facility once she is released from incarceration on her other sentences. Reed said the request was unrealistic.
“Your history goes back 12 years with drug offenses,” Reed said to Rogers. “You’ve had treatment offered multiple times and you’ve failed it.”
In the first case, for the charge of dealing methamphetamine, Reed sentenced Rogers to three years at IDOC. She was given six days of jail time credit and ordered to pay a minimum $200 drug interdiction fee.
In the second case, for the charge of possession of methamphetamine, Rogers received a sentence of one year at IDOC. For the charge of driving while suspended, Rogers was sentenced to one year at the Kosciusko County Jail. Reed sentenced Rogers to 60 days in the Kosciusko County Jail for the charge of possession of paraphernalia. The sentences, in this case, were ordered to be served concurrently but consecutive to the sentence imposed in case F4-449.
Reed stated that if Rogers stays conduct clear at IDOC and successfully completes the Recovery while Incarcerated program, he will consider a sentence modification at some point in the future.
Pursuant to the plea agreement, Rogers’ driving privileges will be suspended for one year. This will begin once Rogers is released from incarceration.
