An eight-year sentence was handed down to Khatrina Lindsey in the Starke Circuit Court yesterday afternoon for her conviction of Dealing in Methamphetamine as a Class B felony. Lindsey admitted to purchasing pseudoephedrine to be used in the manufacture of methamphetamine by a subject who had agreed to manufacture the drug for her.
However, before Lindsey can begin serving her sentence, she must first finish a sentence in Marshall County. Her attorney, Kevin Tankersley, told the court that Lindsey cooperated with law enforcement in the case and needs help with her drug addition problem. The plea agreement calls for a substantial sentence, and Tankersley said he hopes she can go through some educational classes while serving time in the Department of Corrections so, when she gets out, she does not fall back into the same habit.
Judge Kim Hall sentenced Lindsey to eight years in the Department of Corrections with two years suspended to be served on probation following her release. She must also complete a drug rehabilitation program recommended by the probation department and pay a $250 drug interdiction fee as well as a $100 public defender fee.
