    1. Umm…… She has to be at school or work? NOT!!!

      Possible that she pleaded that she was unaware of what was going on and the JP/judge bought it? Being that young, she may have claimed that she was forced into the situation?

  1. Yet another example of a young person manipulated into the drug trade by these scum bags. Awesome what these young individuals are willing to risk for a life time of regret.

  2. I just can’t believe that you let a drug dealer wrote on the street when she was charged with exactly the same thing as the guy was what makes you think she’ll be around to go to court on February

  3. I will bet she wont be anywhere near a court room when she is supposed to. Telling her to show up is like asking a pack of starving heynnas not to eat a rotting carcass. What you expect just aint gonna happen.
