Woman sentenced for criminal facilitation

A 30-year-old Minot woman was sentenced to time served of 48 days and 18 months of supervised probation for criminal facilitation of delivery of cocaine in October.

Adrianna L. Harris Clinton pleaded guilty to the Class A misdemeanor, along with a second Class A misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia in district court in Minot on Wednesday.

Judge Richard Hagar sentenced her to 360 days in jail on the criminal facilitation charge, all suspended except for the 48 days she already served, as well as probation. She was given a deferred imposition of sentence for 18 months on the drug paraphernalia charge and ordered to obtain a chemical dependency evaluation. She must also pay $190 in restitution and $625 in court costs.

A co-defendant, Bennie Scobey Jr., was sentenced to three years in prison in December for dealing cocaine.

Harris Clinton had originally been charged with conspiracy to deliver a controlled substance, a Class B felony, in the case.
