TORRINGTON (WNE) — A Nebraska woman faces up to three years in Wyoming prison for conspiring to have a controlled substance delivered to her while in custody of the Goshen County Detention Center.
Stacey L. Roche pleaded guilty on Oct. 26 to a felony count of conspiracy to take a controlled substance into a jail. According to court documents, she agreed to a plea agreement that could send her to the Wyoming Women’s Center in Lusk for two to three years and place her on supervised probation for three years.
Roche was charged after Goshen County Detention Center deputies intercepted correspondence between Roche and Douglas Boyce of Scottsbluff, Nebraska, earlier this year. On Jan. 26, a GCDC nurse alerted Lieutenant Wes Deen to an envelope addressed to Roche, according to the affidavit of probable cause.
The envelope contained a “letter with a Fentanyl package glued to it.”
A GCDC deputy intercepted a second letter addressed to Roche on Jan. 29, the affidavit said.
Roche is housed at the GCDC while she is awaiting sentencing.
