Nampa Woman Sentenced To Controlled Substance Delivery

BOISE – Mary Jane Pace, 49, of Nampa, Idaho, was sentenced today to three years probation and 90 days home detention for distributing a controlled substance, U.S. Attorney Wendy J. Olson announced. Pace appeared today before U.S. District Judge Edward J. Lodge at the federal courthouse in Boise.

According to the indictment, plea agreement, and arguments in court, in May of 2012, on two separate occasions, Pace knowingly and intentionally distributed to an undercover police officer, a total of fourteen pills containing oxycodone, a Schedule II narcotic and controlled substance, in exchange for a total of $390 in payment. Pace obtained the controlled substances by prescription from a provider.

“Illegal distribution of prescription painkillers continues to ripple through our community, causing addiction and destroying lives.” said Olson. “We are committed to prosecuting these cases and combating this scourge at all levels of distribution.”

The case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) led Tactical Diversion Squad which is comprised of law enforcement personnel from the DEA, Ada County Sheriff’s Office, Boise Police Department, Idaho State Police, Meridian Police Department, Nampa Police Department and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General.
