Condra sentenced in meth sting

WASHINGTON — Christina Y. Condra, 26, originally of French Lick, was sentenced Monday to approximately 23 and a half years in the Indiana Department of Correction.

In an Oct. 31 plea agreement, Condra pleaded guilty in Daviess County Superior Court to allegations in a petition to revoke a suspended sentence, to conspiracy to commit dealing in methamphetamine, and to escape.

“A conviction and sentence like this is a credit to the outstanding work of the Daviess County Sheriff’s Department,” said Prosecutor Dan Murrie.

The meth charge resulted from a controlled drug buy on Aug. 27, 2009, using a confidential informant. Condra coordinated the purchase of an eight ball of methamphetamine for $240, which later increased to $275, and arrangements were made for the informant to pick up the meth at Cherry Tree Apartments, within 1,000 feet of a family housing complex.

Another person arrived with the meth and was later identified by detectives monitoring the exchange.

Conspiracy to commit dealing in methamphetamine is a Class A felony, which carries a sentence of 20 to 50 years. Judge Dean A. Sobecki sentenced Condra to 20 years on the charge and required her to pay a $200 drug and alcohol countermeasure fee.

“This conviction is a product of an organized multi-defendant drug take-down,” Murrie said. “I will continue to work with law enforcement to emphasize the importance of protecting our families from the sale of meth and other illegal drugs.”

Condra originally was arrested on a warrant March 17, 2011, for dealing the meth, and held at the Daviess County Security Center on $100,000 bond. On March 31, she was arrested on a second petition to revoke a suspended sentence for violating probation in two cases, and bond was set at $100,000 again. On June 12, Condra was released to family members temporarily to attend a funeral in French Lick and failed to return at the scheduled time. She remained at large until July 20, when she was again arrested.
