A Sallisaw woman entered a guilty plea to a drug charge in U.S. District Court in Muskogee, and will be sentenced after a pre-sentence investigation.
The U.S. attorney’s office reported Amber Luana Small, 25, pleaded guilty to being in possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine. The charge was the result of an investigation by the District 27 Drug Task Force and the Drug Enforcement Administration.
The crime is punishable by not less than five years or more than 40 years imprisonment, and up to a $5 million fine or both.
The Indictment alleged that on or about Aug. 30 the defendant did knowingly and intentionally possess with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of a mixture or substance containing a detectable amount of methamphetamine, a Schedule II controlled substance.
Judge Kimberly E. West accepted the plea and ordered the completion of a pre-sentence investigation report. The defendant will remain in custody pending a sentencing hearing.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Timothy Hammer represented the United States.
