Tasha Hale entered a guilty plea to various charges Friday in Carter County Criminal Court and received a 12-year sentence to serve with the Tennessee Department of Corrections.
Hale on October 12, 2022, was charged with selling methamphetamine to an informant working for the Carter County Sheriff’s Office. She was charged with felony evading arrest May 3, 2023, and received a four-year sentence to run concurrent with the 12 years on the drug charge.
The parole violation was the result of two new charges in Carter County Criminal Court.
Hale must serve at least 35 percent of the 12 years before she is eligible for parole.
Hale was found guilty in 2020 in Washington County Criminal Court of a felony methamphetamine charge and was ordered to serve eight years with parole eligibility coming after 30 percent of the sentence.
The 12-year sentence will run consecutively to a parole violation.
