Montague woman faces prison for dealing meth.

By Allison Scarbrough, Editor.

HART — A 22-year-old Montague woman faces two to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty in 27th Circuit Court Monday, Sept. 27, to two counts of delivery/manufacture of methamphetamine.

Hailee Elizabeth Tarket originally faced five counts of the meth delivery charge, which carries a 20-year maximum sentence. The other three counts will be dismissed in exchange for her plea.

Tarket testified before Judge Robert D. Springstead that the drug deals took place in the Rothbury Wesco parking lot between May 25 and June 24.

Tarket testified she sold “around 2 ½ grams for $280” each time. The person she sold the drug to turned out to be an undercover narcotics officer. She told Judge Springstead that her cost was $120 for each transaction.

“I was just trying to make some extra money so I could pay my bills, and I just got carried away,” she said.

Sentencing is set for Nov. 29 at 10:30 a.m.

Tarket is currently lodged in the Oceana County Jail.

Sentencing guidelines for the minimum term are 24-40 months.
