A Shortsville woman appears to be headed to trial after she was charged with criminal sale of a controlled substance for allegedly selling drugs that led to a nonfatal overdose in the Town of Manchester.
CANANDAIGUA — A trial date was set for a Shortsville woman who's facing charges of third degree criminal sale of a controlled substance after a Manchester overdose.
On Tuesday in court, Alyssa Pearson, 25, appeared in front of Ontario county Judge Brian Dennis alongside her attorney, Carrie Bleakley, to argue the admissibility of her statements she made to investigators.
Back in March of this year Pearson was questioned by Ontario County Sheriff Investigator Joseph Murphy who testified in court that he read Pearson her Miranda rights and she clearly acknowledged being read those rights prior to the interview.
Pearson, who is currently being held at the Ontario County Jail on no bail, was charged after an investigation into a non-fatal drug overdose in the Town of Manchester. According to Tuesday's testimony Pearson was present at the overdose and is admitted to being a heroin user who bought her drugs in Rochester.
Judge Dennis ruled that her statements shall be admissible during her trial.
Assistant District Attorney Zachary Mauer is prosecuting the case.
The trail is scheduled for February 19.
