Jennifer Fayanne Gorton, 25, Little Falls, was sentenced March 7, in Morrison County District Court with one felony count of fifth degree possession of drugs
On Jan. 18, a Little Falls police officer observed a vehicle drive through a stop sign. He followed the suspect until it came to a stop at a local business. The officer observed a driver, a person in the back seat and another in a fetal position on the floor. The person hiding from the officer’s view was identified as Gorton, who admitted she had a warrant for her arrest.
Inside Gorton’s purse, the officer located a hypodermic syringe and an orange pill bottle under her seat containing a crystal-like substance which field-tested positive for methamphetamine.
Gorton was sentenced to 13 months at the Minnesota Correctional Facility in Shakopee, stayed for five years and to 180 days in jail. She was fined $135 and given five years of supervised probation.
