A woman who arranged a drug deal in the Magness Library parking lot has escaped with probation.
The woman, Nina Carol Parker, entered a guilty plea before Circuit Court Judge Bart Stanley to the charge of attempted delivery of Dihydrocodenone. She was placed on probation for two years for the Class E felony and must pay $2,000 plus court costs and perform 50 hours public service work. Her charge was reduced down one felony level as part of her plea bargain.
Her sentence comes after she was part of a drug deal in the parking lot of Magness Library in downtown McMinnville in which she sold 13 percocet to an undercover drug operative for a price of $90. Investigators say she was part of the drug deal alongside accused murderer Chad Ray Thompson, who is behind bars awaiting trial for the murder of his cousin, Tracey A. Martin.
The downtown drug deal happened prior the slaying in November. Thompson had his plea date on the drug charges continued until May 23.
