Court roundup

Guilty plea in delivery charge
Trina K. Mills, 53, of Port Angeles was sentenced to serve 24 months state probation after she pled guilty to delivery of a controlled substance on Oct. 31 in Clallam County Superior Court.
The guilty plea is a result of an OPNET investigation that occurred on May 8, 2012. During the investigation OPNET developed probable cause to believe that Mills unlawfully delivered prescription medication to another suspect, who in turn unlawfully delivered the medication to an informant working for OPNET.
The investigation on May 8 was one small part of a much larger investigation that resulted in the arrests of seven people in the Port Angeles and Sequim areas on June 8.
Mills was the fifth suspect to plead guilty in the series of seven. Another result of the Mills investigation was the seizure of Mills’ car by OPNET after OPNET developed probable cause to believe that Mills used her car to transport and unlawfully deliver controlled substances.

Sentencing in OPNET case
Corey E. Borden, 23, of Clallam County, was sentenced to 24 months state probation on Oct. 30. Borden’s sentence was a result of his guilty plea on Oct. 9, 2012, to delivery of a controlled substance.
Borden’s plea was a result of an Olympic Peninsula Narcotics Enforcement Team investigation on Jan. 20, 2011, during which OPNET developed probable cause to believe that Borden unlawfully delivered prescription medication to an informant working for OPNET.

 

Probation set on possession charge

Phillip A. Graham, 52, of Port Angeles, was sentenced to serve 24 months state probation on Oct. 30.
Graham’s sentencing follows his Oct. 17, 2012, guilty plea to possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver in Clallam County Superior Court.
Graham’s plea follows his arrest by OPNET during the execution of a search warrant at a residence in the 800 block of South Peabody Street on July 31.
While searching Graham’s home OPNET located over two ounces of methamphetamine.
That quantity of methamphetamine could have been sold for more than $2,000, if sold by the ounce, or it could have been sold for up to $6,000 if sold by the gram, OPNET officials said.
