Former Buffalo woman pleads guilty to marijuana trafficking

Jacquelyn Witman, 31, a former Buffalo resident lately living in Atlanta, Ga., pleaded guilty Monday to charges of conspiracy to possess marijuana with intent to distribute it, and to distributing marijuana in an interstate trafficking operation.

She is the third suspect to plead guilty, among six suspects in the case. She faces a prison term of up to five years and a $250,000 fine when she is sentenced by Chief U.S. District Judge William M. Skretny in Buffalo. Her sentencing date has yet to be scheduled.

In the multi-agency case that led to the seizure of about $1 million in cash, an Alden man and two Buffalo men still face trial. A Phoenix, Ariz., man and a Tempe, Ariz., man have been convicted here of marijuana trafficking and still face sentencing.
