CLEARFIELD – A Chester Hill woman will be spending time in state prison for selling methamphetamine.
Danielle Renee Durlin, 35, pleaded guilty Monday to delivery of a controlled substance, criminal use of communication facility and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Judge Fredric J. Ammerman sentenced her to 21 months to four years in state prison.
Prior to sentencing, Ammerman commented that her sentence was long because she had a previous felony on her criminal record that included cases in Texas.
According to the affidavit of probable cause, a confidential informant contacted Durlin inquiring if she had any “Molly” or ecstasy for sale. This informant then contacted a state trooper who told him/her to also ask Durlin if she had any methamphetamine for sale.
A controlled purchase was arranged for both drugs with the informant set to meet Durlin outside her home. While on the way, Durlin advised the informant that she only had meth to sell.
At the home, officers saw the informant talk with Durlin from her car and then go inside the residence. When the informant left the home, he/she traveled to another location where he/she met with the trooper and provided the two bags of suspected meth.
The informant told the trooper when Durlin spoke with him/her at the vehicle, she asked for the money to take into the house to her husband. The informant told Durlin he/she was not giving up the money. After this, Durlin went inside then came back out to say it was OK to go in.
Inside the residence, Durlin went into the front bedroom and came back with a CD case with meth inside. The informant then gave Durlin the money.
The informant reported that Durlin’s mother and Durlin’s two children were also in the home at the time of the sale.
