SALISBURY — A woman charged in February alongside her father with trafficking black tar heroin received probation last month.
Sarah Katherine Moss, 23, was charged with felony trafficking heroin and pleaded guilty in late July to a lesser charge of felony possession with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver a controlled substance.
Authorities said Moss and her father, Jeffrey Scott Moss, 50, had black tar heroin and marijuana packaged for sale, illegal prescription pain pills, new and used syringes, baggies, scales and smoking pipes at their Enochville home.
The two also allowed a 7-year-old easy access to the marijuana, needles and drug paraphernalia, authorities said.
Rowan County Sheriff’s officials said at the time, they believed the Mosses allowed people to buy drugs at the home and use drugs at the home.
Sarah Moss received four to five months in the N.C. Department of Correction, which was suspended to a year of supervised probation.
She also pleaded guilty to misdemeanor contributing to the delinquency of a minor and possession of drug paraphernalia, which she received 18 months supervised probation.
Sarah Moss is not to possess illegal substances, submit to DNA sample, pay a $600 lab fee, obtain her GED, submit to warrantless searches, and pay $335 in attorney fees and $953 in court finess.
She also received credit for 40 days of special probation.
Sarah Moss was also ordered to abide by all Social Services recommendations for her child.
In exchange for her plea, the courts dismissed possession of heroin and conspiring to sell/deliver heroin, both felonies.
Jeffrey Moss was originally charged with felony trafficking heroin, pleaded guilty in April to a lesser offense of felony possession with the intent manufacture, sell or deliver a controlled substance.
Sarah Moss’s sentences are to run at the expiration of the first.
He received four to five months in the N.C. Department of Correction, which was suspended to a year of supervised probation.
Jeffrey Moss’s sentences are consecutive. He pleaded guilty to felony possession with the intent manufacture, sell or deliver a controlled substance and was given a year of supervised probation.
In exchange for his plea, the court dismissed a charge of felony maintaining a vehicle/dwelling place for a controlled substance and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.
Jeffrey Moss is not to possess illegal substances, submit to DNA sample, pay a $600 lab fee, obtain his GED, submit to warrantless searches, and pay $335 of his court appointed attorney fees and $953 in court finess.
He also received credit for 40 days of special probation.
