A Crossville woman had a host of charges pending in General Sessions Court pleaded guilty in Cumberland County Criminal Court to attempting to bring methamphetamine into the county jail and received a split sentence.
Shelley Marie Shull, 38, formerly of Deep Draw Rd., pleaded guilty to an information charging attempt to introduce contraband into a penal institution. She received a two-year, suspended sentence, with 65 days to serve in the jail and the balance on supervised probation. That sentence is to be served concurrently with pleas in General Sessions Court, where last month she faced more than two dozen felony and misdemeanor charges.
Shull was arrested on March 14 by Deputy Sgt. Sean Mullikin after the officer observed Shull driving a Dodge Charger in and out of its lane of traffic. During the traffic stop, Shull was found in possession of methamphetamine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia. A search of her person at the jail yielded a glass smoking pipe with crystal substance inside.
Last month Shull was facing aggravated burglary, felony possession of meth, two resisting arrest charges, five simple possession charges, two violations of orders of protection, and a host of lesser charges.
