Fairfield Woman Pleads Guilty to Possession of a Controlled Substance in Hamilton County

HAMILTON COUNTY — A Fairfield woman pled guilty Monday in Hamilton County Court to unlawful possession of a controlled substance – a Class 4 felony.

Hamilton County State’s Attorney Justin Hood says 32-year-old Amanda Scott will serve one year in the Illinois Department of Corrections and serve one year of mandatory supervised release.

Scott was arrested on Dec. 9, 2018 by the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office for having two prescription pills in her possession without a valid prescription.

Hood says Scott will serve her sentence consecutive to two felony cases in Wayne County and White County. She was sentenced in those two counties to three years in IDOC.
