Mitchell woman pleads guilty to possessing fentanyl

A Mitchell woman pleaded guilty Tuesday to possession of a controlled substance.

Tessica Bjornebo, 31, entered her plea during court at the Davison County Public Safety Center.

Bjornebo was arrested in May for possession of fentanyl patches, a prescription drug, for which she did not have a prescription.

As a part of a plea agreement, Bjornebo will agree to pay all prosecution costs, the state will drop two other related charges and will not enter a habitual offender status, and will not ask for more than five years in prison.

Judge Tim Bjorkman ordered a presentence investigation and scheduled sentencing for September.
