A New Tazewell woman pleaded guilty last week to conspiracy to sell or deliver over 200 grams of oxycodone and prescription fraud.
Patsy Louise Leedy, 35, appeared in Claiborne County Criminal Court in front of Judge Shayne Sexton on March 4. She was sentenced to 10 years in the custody of the Tennessee Department of Corrections, followed by four years of supervised release.
Leedy’s convictions were the result of a joint investigation between the Tazewell Police Department and the New Tazewell Police Department. Assistant District Attorney General Jared Effler prosecuted Leedy on behalf of the State of Tennessee.
“These convictions demonstrate the success that can be accomplished with multi-agency cooperation,” said Effler. “The work of Detective Wayne Mewhinney of the New Tazewell Police Department and Sgt. Shawn Goode of the Tazewell Police Department was exemplary in this case.”
In addition to her prison sentence, Leedy was also ordered to pay court costs, a $2,000 fine, $10,000 to the New Tazewell Police Department drug fund and $10,000 to the Tazewell Police Department drug fund.
