A Lebanon woman entered a plea Wednesday in a case where sheriff’s deputies found marijuana in her home.
Fayth Charee McCreery, 25, of Lebanon, pleaded guilty to felony possession of marijuana with the intent to sell or deliver.
McCreery was also charged with possession of a firearm with the intent to go armed, but that charge was dropped Wednesday in a plea agreement.
She was sentenced to two years in jail, suspended to serve two years of supervised probation, and she must pay $2,000 in fines.
Prosecutors said Rutherford County sheriff’s deputies found a driver in possession of marijuana during a traffic stop. The deputies asked the driver if he wanted to show them where he bought the marijuana, and he agreed. The home was in Wilson County.
Wilson County deputies executed a search warrant at McCreery’s home on Bellview Driver and found her there alone.
Prosecutors said McCreery was read her rights and afterward admitted she sold the marijuana earlier that day and claimed it was the only time she had ever done so. She turned over to deputies other marijuana also in the house.
Prosecutors said during the search, deputies found three pistols McCreery claimed belonged to her boyfriend, who was in the Davidson County Jail at the time.
