NORTH HAVERHILL (AP) — A New Hampshire woman has pleaded guilty in a scheme to smuggle heroin to her fiance while he was an inmate at a Grafton County jail.
The Caledonian Record reports Chantelle Paradise, of Woodsville pleaded guilty Friday in North Haverhill to two counts of possessing a controlled drug and one count of prohibited delivery of articles. She was sentenced to a 2-to-4 year prison term.
Police said 25-year-old Paradise conspired to smuggle heroin or fentanyl to her fiance in March when he was jailed on pre-trial confinement. They said she tried to smuggle the drugs through former Grafton County corrections officer Michael Barata Jr.
Barata, of Wells River, Vt., was sentenced last week to 2-to-4 years in prison.
