UPSHUR COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -

A Gilmer woman scheduled to stand trial for dealing methamphetamine across the street from Gilmer High School has instead opted to enter into a plea agreement.

Ashley Nichole Grubbs, 29, changed her decision on asking an Upshur County Jury to assess her punishment and instead entered into a plea bargain agreement with the State, Grubbs has been sentenced to 40 years in prison for her part in a three-person organized crime group on selling meth for profit across from Gilmer High School. 

According to Upshur County District Attorney Billy Byrd, Grubbs was cooperative with investigators following her indictment and arrest in Oct. of 2017. 

She also was charged with Engaging in Organized Crime wherein she had two co-defendants engaged in selling as well in order to make a profit.

Two other defendants, Austin Wolfe and Anthony Tutor remain in custody and await trial. 

With the plea bargain agreement, the sentence becomes final and she has waived her right to an appeal.
