Carissa Marcy, Minot, sentenced for intent to deliver meth, burglary

Carissa Sue Marcy, 30, Minot, will serve about 18 months in prison and three years of supervised probation for intent to deliver methamphetamine in August 2017.

Marcy entered Alford pleas Thursday to possession of meth with intent to deliver, a Class B felony, and burglary, a Class C felony, and possession of heroin, a Class A misdemeanor. The Alford pleas mean she maintains her innocence but recognizes she might be found guilty if the case went to trial.

Court records show that North Central District Court Judge Gary Lee sentenced Marcy to concurrent three-year sentences in prison on each of the felony charges, with a requirement she serve the 18 months, followed by three years supervised probation. She was also ordered to pay $395 in court costs. He recommended that she receive drug treatment while in prison.

Marcy was charged after the Ward County Sheriff’s Department obtained a search warrant to search a residence at Crescent Drive for property stolen from a southwest Minot address. The search turned up the stolen property as well as the drugs.

Jordan Barnes was also charged as a co-defendant on the drug charges. That case is still open.
