NORWICH – A Norwich woman pleaded guilty to fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and may be facing federal charges after police raided her apartment and found items including approximately four pounds of meth, a handgun, and $35,625 in cash.
Cheyanne D. Moore, 22, of Norwich was charged with second-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a class A felony, and third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a class B felony.
In Chenango County Court on Monday, Moore pleaded guilty to fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a class D felony, and admitted that on December 17, 2018 in 93 East Main Street in the City of Norwich, she was in possession of 68 bags of cocaine with the intent to sell it.
As part of her plea bargain she will be sentenced to two-and-a-half years in prison, with three years of probation.
District Attorney Michael Ferrarese said Moore is not required to testify against her co-defendant, Corey Weidman, but the federal government may ask her to do so in future court appearances.
