August 20, 1993|By Darren M. Allen | Darren M. Allen,Staff Writer

Circuit Judge Francis M. Arnold convicted a 29-year-old Pennsylvania woman of selling an ounce of marijuana to an undercover drug task force officer and sentenced her to 30 days in the county jail.

Tina Marie Parker, of Spring Grove, Pa., pleaded not guilty yesterday to one count of possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, but agreed to allow prosecutors to present a statement of facts to the court that was sufficient to find her guilty.

In return, prosecutors agreed to a one-year sentence with all but 30 days in the Carroll County Detention Center suspended. They also dropped several other drug charges against her.

According to a statement of facts read by Assistant State's Attorney Kathi Hill, state police Tfc. Robert Heuisler, of the Carroll County Narcotics Task Force, arranged in March to buy an ounce of marijuana from Parker after she answered the telephone at her house and agreed to meet him at a hardware store in northern Carroll County.

Parker's husband, Joseph A. Parker, is in the Carroll County Detention Center awaiting sentencing for convictions on three counts of possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute.
