WILLMAR — A Willmar woman has received a stayed prison sentence and jail time on a conviction of felony second-degree drug possession.
Jennifer Rebecca Wendt, 45, was sentenced Tuesday in Kandiyohi County District Court to 58 months in prison to be stayed for 10 years of supervised probation. She was ordered to serve 240 days, with credit given for 127 days already served.
Her fines and court fees total $1,285. She may be released from jail early to go to inpatient treatment, according to court records.
Wendt was arrested in November 2018 after a search warrant was executed at a New London home.
She was initially charged with three felonies, including the sale and possession of methamphetamine and storing drugs in the presence of a child. She also faced a gross misdemeanor charge of endangering a child. The other charges were dismissed in a plea agreement.
According to the complaint filed against her, authorities said the task force found several containers of meth with a total weight of about 2.3 ounces and also $955 in cash at the home, where a child was present.
