Co-defendant in 2021 drug case sent to prison for 12 years after proffer of testimony and plea deal



A 23-year-old Fort Smith woman was sentenced to 12 years with 18 years suspended last week during a plea deal concerning drug charges in Sebastian County Circuit Court.


Originally charged with seven different felony accounts upon her arrest on December 9th of 2021, Jacey L. Reed was allowed to plead guilty to one modified count of conspiracy to traffic controlled substances in a case that was tied to another defendant that we told you about Sunday.


Reed, who was living in Springdale at the time, was arrested in conjunction with Mateo Solis, who was also sentenced to 25 years in prison last week.


Reed was originally charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose to deliver, possession of drug paraphernalia, two counts of trafficking in a controlled substance, and one count of theft by receiving.


Her plea deal in open court, after she submitted a proffer of testimony, resulted in all the charges being reduced to one count of conspiracy.


According to booking information from the Sebastian County Detention Center, Reed spent approximately six months in jail before bonding out in May of 2021. She was given credit for time served.


As of Monday morning, she awaited transfer to the Arkansas Department of Corrections at the Sebastian County Detention Center.
