Boalsburg woman given 3 years in prison, $15,000 fine for selling cocaine

From CDT staff reportsJune 25, 2013 

— A Boalsburg woman who helped sell cocaine for a convicted drug dealer will spend at least three years behind bars in a state prison.

Krista Henry, 25, was sentenced Tuesday for drug crimes under investigation last year by the 33rd statewide grand jury in Dauphin County. Judge Bradley P. Lunsford also ordered Henry to pay a $15,000 fine and gave her a maximum sentence of six years in prison.

The case was prosecuted by the state Attorney General’s Bureau of Narcotics in State College.

Henry pleaded guilty to selling cocaine for Andre Adams, a former New York man who is serving a more than 77-year state prison sentence for drug trafficking.

According to a grand jury presentment, Henry sold cocaine to a confidential informant four times last summer in State College. The amounts were 1.8 grams to 3.8 grams, and she got between $180 and $360.

Adams was arrested in February 2012 after police carried out a search warrant on his apartment.

Agents confiscated more than a pound of cocaine from Adams’s apartment that he tried to flush down the toilet. Authorities also seized $17,000 from his car.
