A Knoxville woman declared a habitual offender was sentenced to 25 years in prison for a methamphetamine charge.
Michele Christine Brodie, 46, of Knoxville, received the prison sentence last week from Judge Thomas Murphy. The judge ordered a minimum of three years be served before she is eligible for release.
In April, Brodie was charged with controlled substance violation, a class B felony. She pled guilty to a lesser charge of possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver, a class C felony.
Brodie was charged following a search warrant being served at her residence at 109 South Attica Road in Knoxville on February 11.
Detectives from the Mid-Iowa Narcotics Enforcement drug task force located 14 grams of methamphetamine as well as multiple plastic baggies and a digital scale, authorities said in court filings.
A search of Brodie’s phone indicated the sell of methamphetamine, officers said.
Brodie was also charged with failure to affix drug tax stamp, a class D felony. That charge was dismissed by the court.
She was also ordered to complete evaluations for substance abuse and mental health.
