BURLINGTON — Julie Overfield, a 63-year-old resident of Winooski, has been sentenced to serve 40 months in prison after being convicted for possession with intent to distribute cocaine, cocaine base, and methamphetamine.
Overfield also received a 24-month prison sentence for violating terms of supervised release that were imposed following a previous conviction in the District of Arizona for conspiring to distribute more than 50 grams of methamphetamine.
Chief United States District Judge Geoffrey Crawford ordered that after Overfield’s release from prison, she must serve a three-year term of supervised release.
According to court records, the Winooski Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration began investigating Overfield in February of 2022.
On two occasions, Overfield sold methamphetamine to a confidential informant assisting law enforcement.
On March 23, 2022, the DEA executed a federal search warrant at Overfield’s residence, resulting in the seizure of 60 grams of cocaine, 36 grams of cocaine base, 13.5 grams of methamphetamine, and $4,341 in cash.
Laboratory testing revealed that all of the methamphetamine was of high purity, commonly referred to as “Ice.”
