GOSHEN — A woman initially charged with dealing in methamphetamine pleaded guilty to lesser-included offenses Thursday, Aug. 15, at Elkhart’s Circuit Court.

Emily Parsons, 23, of Three Rivers, Mich., pleaded guilty to possession of methamphetamine, possession of methadone and possession of marijuana. A charge of dealing in meth was dropped.

Parsons agreed to a sentence of four years on probation.

Parsons was arrested Feb. 21 during a traffic stop on C.R. 17, just north of C.R. 14. Police found in her car several small plastic bags that contained meth, as well as methadone pills, according to the probable cause affidavit filed for her arrest. Police also found marijuana in the vehicle.

Parsons told the officer who stopped her that she was transporting the drugs someone else gave her to deliver.

Judge Terry Shewmaker took the plea under advisement and scheduled Parsons’ sentencing hearing for Sept. 5.
