GILMER–A 115th District Court jury is scheduled to consider the sentence Tuesday for a Gilmer woman who has pleaded guilty to selling methamphetamine directly across from Gilmer High School, Upshur County District Attorney Billy Byrd announced Monday.
The sentencing trial for Ashley Nichole Grubbs, 29, is set for 9 a.m. before Judge Lauren Parish, said Byrd. The defendant was indicted last Oct. 12 on the charge, and also charged with engaging in organized crime as she is alleged to have “had two co-defendants engaged in selling as well in order to make a profit,” Byrd said in a news release.
The punishment range for the drug offense is 5-99 years in prison. The Texas Department of Public Safety investigated the case, said Byrd.
He will prosecute the case. Gilmer attorney Matthew Patton represents Grubbs.
