CLEARFIELD – A former Clearfield woman pleaded guilty to possessing drugs during a special sentencing session of court Monday.
Krisandra Deanna Evans, 24, was sentenced to six months to one year in jail and one year consecutive probation for a felony count of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia by Judge Fredric J. Ammerman.
This sentence will run consecutive to a probation revocation sentence of 28 days to six months in jail that she received in December.
Her co-defendant, Allen Williams, 30, pleaded guilty to similar charges in January when he was sentenced to three months to one year in jail and one year consecutive probation.
The charges stem from an incident at a Clearfield Borough apartment on Dec. 30, 2016 when police found drugs, paraphernalia and other indications of drug activity.
Officers had been called to the home to check the welfare of Evans, who had reportedly been having seizures and missed a medical appointment.
According to the affidavit of probable cause, after knocking on the door of the apartment and trying to get a response for about 18 minutes, Evans opened the door. She claimed she didn’t hear anyone knocking.
She did confirm she was having seizures the previous evening but didn’t realize she had a doctor’s appointment.
Williams was also in the apartment and said he didn’t hear the knocking either.
When they entered the apartment, the officers were able to see drug paraphernalia and pills in plain sight. They asked the couple if they could search the home and they agreed to it.
Under the bed, they found a black case that contained two tablets listing appointment dates, names and amounts of money owed. They also found numerous empty prescription bottles for Buprenorphine, small plastic bags used to package drugs for sale, a scale, grinders, glass pipes, K2 bags, and 27 Clonazepam tablets.
Williams told police that he and some others supplied money for doctor’s appointments and to cover the cost of prescriptions. In exchange, they would receive drugs.
A review of the couple’s cell phones uncovered several texts setting up various drug transactions.
