Viola Quintana, plea conference – Taos District Court, Courtroom B, Judge Jeff McElroy
Quintana, a 73-year-old Peñasco woman, is set to appear for a plea conference related to a trafficking controlled substances case filed against her in March.
The 73-year-old was among several individuals arrested during a multi-agency drug arrest this year.
A criminal complaint filed in the case alleges Quintana was repackaging hydrocodone, a prescribed opioid-based painkiller, for resale. She was charged with one count of drug trafficking, a second-degree felony.
Details of a plea agreement proposed in her case were not known as of press time.
