MASON CITY | A Kanawha woman has been ordered to serve up to 10 years in prison after her probation was revoked Monday on drug convictions.
Jessica Ann Grant, 23, received a deferred sentence not to exceed 10 years for felony delivery of a controlled substance, methamphetamine, in Cerro Gordo County District Court in 2015. She is required to serve one-third of the time in prison.
Grant delivered more than 5 grams of methamphetamine to a confidential informant on Jan. 23, 2014, according to the Mason City Police Department’s criminal complaint.
On Dec. 28, she was given a suspended prison sentence not to exceed two years for amended charges misdemeanor possession of methamphetamine, second offense, and a suspended sentence not to exceed two years for misdemeanor possession of marijuana, second offense, in Hancock County District Court to be served consecutively with her Cerro Gordo County sentence. For both counts, Grant received a $625 suspended fine.
Grant was initially charged with felony possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine and marijuana in Hancock County after a search warrant executed at a residence on May 19, 2017, yielded more than 4 grams of methamphetamine, more than 2 grams of marijuana, plastic baggies commonly used to distribute narcotics and multiple digital scales, court documents say.
