A Campbellsville woman has pleaded guilty to selling drugs and could spend five years in prison for her crimes.

Betty Ann Harris, 54, of 10331 Saloma Road appeared before Taylor Circuit Court Judge Doughlas M. George on Friday, Nov. 7.

Harris pleaded guilty to first-degree selling oxycodone.

The prosecutor has recommended that Harris be sentenced to serve five years in prison and pay $690 in restitution to the Campbellsville Police Department Drug Elimination Fund.

The same drug charge against Harris' co-defendant, Orvey Harris, 54, also of 10331 Saloma Road in Campbellsville, was dismissed without prejudice.

Court records state the charge was dismissed because Betty Harris took responsibility for the drugs, though Orvey Harris admitted there was cause for his arrest. Court records also list his age as 56.
