A Broome County woman who was arrested back in October in the Village of Marathon for possessing the drug meth has been sentenced to spend a year and half in prison, but will likely be out sooner if she completes an intensive drug rehab program.
Last October, the Cortland County Drug Task Force conducted a traffic stop on Peck Street in Marathon. Officers stopped 23-year-old Leandra Roden McCosker formerly of Jennings Creek Rd., Killawog.
During the stop McCosker was found with approximately 4 grams of methamphetamine and a small amount of marijuana.
Police say that McCosker manufactured the drugs. McCosker was charged with a felony count of possessing of a controlled substance, unlawful possession of marijuana, a violation, aggravated unlicensed operation, a misdemeanor, vehicle and traffic violations including uninspected motor vehicle, unsafe tire, and no seatbelt.
McCosker has a history of drug and other arrests in the State of Florida.
McCosker who now lists an address in the Broome County Town of Lisle plead guilty to the felony drug charge as part of a plea deal to resolve the charges against her.
In exchange for the plea to the top count, County Judge Julie Campbell said she would recommend that McCosker be admitted to the Willard Drug Treatment program, and if she completes the program will likely be released in three months.
She was also sentenced to a year and half of post release supervision.
