Arrest after controlled buy

Posted on Wednesday, October 23, 2019 at 10:57 am

It was a short docket at the Westmoreland County’s Circuit Court so it wasn’t long before Amy Brann’s case arrived before Judge Hewitt: multiple counts of manufacturing or selling a controlled substance, in this case, Suboxone.

Back around April and May, Brann sold pills at what later turned out to be a pair of controlled drug buys, courtesy of a pair of police investigators. It was after the controlled buy in May that Brann was arrested and her case worked its way through the courts.

Brann took a plea bargain, pleading guilty to one count of manufacturing a controlled substance and another for selling a schedule-III controlled substance. She will spend two months of a 10-year sentence, as well as have to undergo substance abuse evaluation and pay $360 in restitution to the county. She starts serving her sentence this Friday.
