NORWICH – A second co-defendant pleaded guilty Monday to her role in the local cocaine drug trade after police seized more than $25,000 worth of the substance, a sports car and assault weapons in connection to the case.
Casie L. Brooks pleaded guilty to third degree criminal sale of a controlled substance, a B class felony carrying a sentence of up to nine years in prison, yesterday in a deal with prosecutors that may require her to testify against her alleged co-conspirators.
Her assigned Defense Attorney Adam Spence said it was his client’s understanding that if she fulfilled her requirements, she would be released with time already served and be placed on five years probation.
Brooks is one of four co-defendants currently involved in the case.
Twenty-one-year-old Curissa Jenkins of 31 Hickok Ave., Norwich, also pleaded guilty in early January to fifth degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a D class felony that carries a maximum prison sentence of two and a half years with one year of post release supervision. Her attorney, Public Defender Alan Gordon, said she would be sentenced to time already served and placed on five years post release supervision as part of the deal. He also said Jenkins would also have to testify at any trial against her co-defendants.
