Northside Gang Associate Sentenced to 33 Months for Selling Methamphetamine
BOISE — Terra Lee McFetridge, 29, of Nampa, Idaho, was sentenced today to 33 months in prison followed by three years of supervised release for distributing methamphetamine, U.S. Attorney Wendy J. Olson, announced. McFetridge pleaded guilty to the charge on February 6.
According to court documents, on May 3, 2011, McFetridge sold approximately three grams of methamphetamine to an individual at her residence for $240. McFetridge and ten other Northside, or “Norteno,” gang members and associates were indicted in October and November last year for a number of drug trafficking and firearm offenses. The Northside street gang is active in the Treasure Valley.
The case was investigated by the Treasure Valley Metro Violent Crimes Task Force and is being prosecuted by the Special Assistant U.S. Attorney hired by the Treasure Valley Partnership and the State of Idaho to address gang crimes. The Treasure Valley Partnership is comprised of a group of elected officials in southeast Idaho dedicated to regional coordination, cooperation, and collaboration on creating coherent regional growth.
