WARSAW — A Warsaw woman will serve two years in jail after dealing methamphetamine.
Brandy Aleisha Light, 28, 766 S. Bunting Lane, Warsaw, was charged with dealing methamphetamine, a level 5 felony. A possession of methamphetamine charge was dismissed as part of a plea agreement.
Light was sentenced in Kosciusko Circuit Court on Monday, June 22.
On Sept. 5, 2019, the NET43 Drug Task Force made a controlled purchase of methamphetamine from Light. She was provided with documented task force money in exchange for 0.8 grams of methamphetamine.
“She has accepted meaningful responsibility and is deeply remorseful,” said Defense Attorney John Barrett. “She wants to change and has changed.”
“I have cleaned up,” said Light during court proceedings. “I ran with the wrong crowd.”
For dealing meth, Judge Michael Reed sentenced Light to two years in the Kosciusko County Jail. The sentence will be served consecutively to three other criminal cases involving theft. Reed said he had no objection to Light serving her sentence through the county’s work release program. Light must also pay $80 in restitution to NET43.
“I commend the steps you’ve taken so far,” said Reed. “But don’t let your guard down.”
