White River Junction drug dealer strikes plea deal
WHITE RIVER JUNCTION - A local drug dealer whose house overlooking downtown White River Junction had been a chronic source of complaints to police in recent years reached a plea deal this week that will see her spend at least nine months in jail.
Angela Redmond, 45, pled guilty to three felony counts of selling heroin, a single felony count of selling cocaine and a misdemeanor count of violating a court-ordered condition of pre-trial release in exchange for an overall sentence of 18-months-to-8-years.
Redmond also received a non-binding recommendation asking that she be allowed to participate in the Correction’s Department’s work camp program which would allow her to reduce her minimum time behind bars by up to half if she were chosen to do so.
Redmond will report to Vermont’s women’s prison in Chittenden early next year to begin serving her sentence.
As part of the plea agreement the state agreed to drop two additional felony sale of heroin charges and four other violations of pre-trial release conditions.
Redmond’s record of arrests for drug activity at her home on Walsh Avenue dates back four years, beginning with a police raid in which both she and her teenaged daughter ended up being charged at the time.
After the sentencing, Redmond got a hug from her defense attorney Leah Henderson
