, 18, of 317 ½ N. James St., Ludington, appeared in 31st Circuit Court Tuesday. She was arrested Aug. 9 by the State, Sheriffs, Chiefs Enforcement of Narcotics Team (SSCENT) for a felony of controlled substance delivery.

At the time of the arrest, Carnahan was living at 605 E. Seventh St. in Ludington. She told the court that another person had brought the drugs into her home when she was not there. She said she did not want the drugs in the house and decided to sell them.

I was not aware of it being brought in,” she said. “I caught the person and I wanted it out of my house. I thought I was being smart and was going to get money instead of throwing it away I sold it.”

She said an acquaintance set up a purchase with a person who wanted to buy the drugs. That person ended up being a law enforcement officer with SSCENT. The drugs were sold for $50.

With the original charge, Carnahan faced up to 20 years in prison and maximum $15,000 fine. The reduced charge could be punishable by up to 15 years in prison.

Carnahan is scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 22 at 1:45 p.m.
