TESSA LEE CHAPMAN, 22, pleaded no contest Oct. 30 to delivery of meth, possession of meth and drug endangered child. In a plea agreement, prosecutors will recommend a five- to six-year prison sentence on the delivery charge, four to five years on the possession charge and two to three years on the endangered child charge — all imposed — with two of the sentences concurrent and one consecutive. She can argue for less on all of the recommendations. As part of the agreement, another count of delivery was dismissed. Chapman was identified by the state Division of Criminal Investigations as a distributor of meth in Campbell County. A confidential informant working with DCI bought meth twice from Chapman in July, once 4 grams for $200 and a second time 0.5 grams for $50. Agents also electronically followed her red Dodge Ram pickup after she said she was traveling to the Denver, Colorado, area on Aug. 1 to get a large amount of meth. When Chapman stopped at the Reno Junction Travel Center, DCI agents met her and, armed with a search warrant, searched her truck. About 15.5 grams of meth was found inside. Her 2-year-old son also was in the pickup, according to court documents.
