WARSAW — A Lafayette woman will avoid prison after dealing drugs to an undercover officer.
Tiffany Ann Galloway, 21, Lafayette, was charged with dealing in methamphetamine, a level 4 felony. A methamphetamine possession charge was dismissed as part of a plea agreement.
Galloway was sentenced in Kosciusko Circuit Court on Monday, Feb. 1.
On June 19, 2018, Warsaw Drug Task Force made a controlled purchase of more than 10 grams of methamphetamine from Galloway. The controlled purchase was captured on audio and video.
During court proceedings, Galloway said she’s fully accepted responsibility for her actions and has taken time to reflect and grow since her arrest.
“I want to take the time to continue growing and doing the right thing,” said Galloway.
For dealing in methamphetamine, Kosciusko Circuit Court Judge Michael Reed sentenced Galloway to six years in the Indiana Department of Corrections. The first two years of Galloway’s sentence will either be served in the Kosciusko County Jail or through Tippecanoe County’s work release program. The last four years of Galloway’s sentence was suspended on probation. She must also pay $1,500 in restitution to the NET43 Drug Task Force.
“I trust that you’ll continue moving forward,” said Judge Reed to Galloway. “Good luck.”
