Two defendants pleaded guilty to drug dealing charges in negotiated plea agreements between the State and Defense Attorney Blair Todd Wednesday morning in Starke Circuit Court.
Michael Mavrides, 32, of Knox, pleaded guilty to a Level 4 Felony charge of dealing in methamphetamine. He admitted to Judge Kim Hall that he sold methamphetamine to an undercover agent on April 4, 2018. He will serve 6 years in the Indiana Department of Corrections with no part of the sentence suspended. It will be for purposeful incarceration so he can get the recovery tools needed to improve his life. Per the terms of the plea agreement, this sentence will be served concurrently, or at the same time, to another sentence in Marshall County on the same charge.
North Judson resident, 29-year-old Amanda Stacy, pleaded guilty to a Level 5 Felony charge of dealing in a narcotic drug. She admitted to Judge Hall that she sold heroin to a middle man who was part of a drug operation on Aug. 22, 2018. She will serve 3 years in the Indiana Department of Corrections with all of the sentence suspended to be served on probation.
Stacy also admitted to unlawfully possessing a syringe at the time which is a Level 6 Felony. The plea agreement calls for a 3 year sentence in the Indiana Department of Corrections with all of the sentence to be suspended to be served on probation. Those sentences will run consecutively.
