BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) -- A 43-year-old Florida woman has pleaded
guilty to charges she conspired to fly to Vermont on a monthly
basis last year to sell hundreds of oxycodone pills to
Burlington-area drug dealers.
Raelynn Fudge, of Jacksonville, entered her plea Friday in U.S.
District Court in Burlington. Sentencing is scheduled for March 8.
According to court documents cited by the Burlington Free Press
(http://bfpne.ws/vZjWRx ), Fudge had 603 oxycodone pills in her
purse when she was arrested outside a restaurant in Williston in
Her attorney said Fudge was indigent and was persuaded by
others to become a drug courier.
Fudge's husband, Robert Fudge, was also arrested and faces drug
conspiracy charges. A third man who was arrested, Earl Russin of
Cambridge, Vt., pleaded guilty in June to drug conspiracy.
