WARSAW — A Warsaw woman will serve a six-year sentence through work release and probation after dealing drugs to an undercover officer.
Taylor Leigh Knecht, 29, 120 N. Hickory St., Warsaw, was charged with dealing in methamphetamine, a level 3 felony. A methamphetamine possession charge was dismissed as part of a plea agreement.
Knecht was sentenced in Kosciusko Circuit Court on Monday, March 1.
Sometime in April 2019, the NET43 Drug Task Force made a controlled purchase of 29 grams of methamphetamine from Knecht.
For dealing methamphetamine, Knecht received a suspended six-year Indiana Department of Corrections sentence. The first three years will be served through Kosciusko County’s work release program and the final three will be served on probation.
Knecht’s case will also be served consecutively to a misdemeanor case. She must also pay $700 in restitution to NET43.
