Woman sentenced for having drugs around children


December 1, 2017

A Havre woman received three years probation after being caught with dangerous drugs and paraphernalia around children.

Terri A. Ackerman, born in 1982, received a three year deferred imposition of sentence for two counts of felony criminal possession of dangerous drugs. The sentence is part of a plea deal that dismissed a misdemeanor criminal possession of drug paraphernalia and two felony counts of endangering the welfare of children. Ackerman can have the offense struck from her record if she abides by its conditions.

Ackerman’s offense happened over a year ago in a Havre residence.

A Safe Trails Task Force Agent responded Nov. 9, 2016, to the scene of a domestic complaint at Oakwood Village Apartments per request by a Havre Police Department officer who found marijuana in plain sight after arriving.

Two small children, 4 years old and 6 months old, were in the residence, along with Ackerman and another person, Jason Meyers.

The two adults had consented to a search that yielded a find of .3 grams of methamphetamine, 112 grams of pot, a bottle filled with syringes, a marijuana joint weighting 4 grams, a digital scale and several items of meth and pot paraphernalia.

All the items located were in an easy-to-reach area, charging documents say.

Several knives including a meat cleaver were lying on the floor within reach of the children as well.

As Ackerman and Meyers were arrested and escorted out, Ackerman told police the paraphernalia and drugs belonged to her.

Jason D. Meyers received five years probation for identical offenses Nov. 13 in District Court in Havre.
