MASON CITY – On Tuesday, February 28th, 30-year-old Whiskey Elana Bearbow of Mason City was sentenced to serve three to five years of probation after plea bargaining to three counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.
Bearbow had been arrested along with fourteen other defendants in July of 2011 as part of an investigation by the North Iowa Drug Task Force.
The charges stemmed from Bearbow’s delivery of methamphetamine on September 24th and October 26th, and another delivery of marijuana on October 13th, 2010. Additional deliveries of methamphetamine on July 23rd, November 10th do not show deposition status in the court records.
Court records show Bearbow entered a voluntary negotiated guilty plea on January 18th, 2012. On Monday, February 28th, Bearbow was sentenced by District Court Judge Christopher C. Foy to two ten year suspended prison sentences for the methamphetamine deliveries, and a five year suspended prison sentence on the marijuana delivery.
Bearbow must serve three to five years of probation with the Iowa Department of Corrections. In addition to suspending Bearbow’s prison sentences Judge Foy also suspended three $1000 court fines in the convictions.
SUBJECT IS INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY.
