Couple receives probation in Pa. meth case

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A former Waynesboro, Pa., couple convicted of delivery of methamphetamine and criminal conspiracy were sentenced to probation Wednesday in Franklin County Court.

Eric Scott Lindsay, 30, and Jessica Danielle Lindsay, 27, were sentenced by Judge John Walker to two concurrent two-year periods of probation on the charges. Eric Lindsay had pleaded guilty to the charges in August, and Jessica Lindsay entered a guilty plea and was sentenced Wednesday.

Court documents showed Eric Lindsay with a Chambersburg address and Jessica Lindsay with a Greencastle, Pa., address, although the incidents took place while they lived in Waynesboro.

The couple had been indicted by a statewide grand jury, and the prosecution was handled through the Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office, according to court records. The indictment stated they had sold methamphetamine to several people between June and September 2005.

The indictment alleged the couple occasionally gave drugs to one neighbor in exchange for baby-sitting services.

Wednesday's sentences came six days after Attorney General Tom Corbett announced that another Waynesboro man, Carlos Justin Mills, 27, of 2954 Oak Hill Road, had been indicted on charges of delivery of methamphetamine and criminal conspiracy.

Mills allegedly sold drugs he obtained in Hagerstown to buyers in Franklin County between January and August 2005. The criminal indictments of the Lindsays did not indicate a connection between the cases, and the deputy attorney general in charge of both prosecutions could not be reached Wednesday.

The state Bureau of Narcotics Investigation and Franklin County Drug Task Force were involved in both investigations, according to court records.
