FORT EDWARD — A Glens Falls woman who was arrested last fall with a large quantity of the illegal hallucinogen/stimulant Ecstasy has been sentenced to 4 years in state prison.
Jeannie M. Morgan-Smith, 49, pleaded guilty in November to third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance in connection with a September seizure in Hudson Falls. Washington County Judge Kelly McKeighan imposed a four-year prison term to be followed by two years on parole.
Morgan-Smith was charged after State Police stopped a vehicle she was in on Main Street because it had a headlight out and the driver did not signal when making a turn, police said.
Morgan-Smith was a passenger in the vehicle, and police developed probable cause to search it and discovered 750 capsules of Ecstasy, which is also known as “Molly.”
She was also charged in early August with unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine, a felony, and misdemeanor criminal possession of meth manufacturing materials, according to Glens Falls Police. Charges in that case are still pending.
