Vermont Attorney General William H. Sorrell announced today that on June 24, 2010, Melissa Davis, formerly of White River Junction, Vermont was sentenced in Windsor District Court to five years to sixteen years of imprisonment as a result of her pleading guilty to six felony counts of narcotics distribution and possession, including one felony count of heroin trafficking, one felony count of sale of heroin and one felony count of sale of crack cocaine. Davis also pled guilty to two felony counts of possession of heroin and one felony count of possession of cocaine. The Windsor County State’s Attorney’s Office was also involved in the prosecution and resolution of Davis’ cases.

According to affidavits filed with the Court, during the period of June 2009 until her arrest in December 2009, Davis made numerous sales of heroin and cocaine to individuals cooperating with the Southern Vermont Drug Task Force and the Vermont State Police. Davis was arrested on December 14, 2009 as she was returning from Hartford, Connecticut and was in possession of approximately two ounces of cocaine and one quarter ounce of heroin. Davis subsequently confessed to police that she had travelled to Connecticut to purchase the narcotics for resale in Vermont.
