Wauconda woman gets 3 years on drug charge

WOODSTOCK – A Wauconda woman on Wednesday was sentenced to three years in prison on a drug charge.

Rosabla Tejeda-Martinez, 43, was charged on Nov. 4, 2012, with multiple felony drug offenses, including a Class X felony for possession of cocaine.

She pleaded guilty before McHenry County Judge Gordon Graham to a reduced charge of attempted possession of a controlled substance, a Class 2 felony. At times, Tejeda-Martinez, who required a Spanish interpreter, appeared confused as the judge read her her rights, often having to repeat or rephrase them.

Assistant State's Attorney Randi Freese said Tejeda-Martinez took a substantial step in obtaining more than 15 grams, but less than 100 grams of cocaine.

Tejeda-Martinez received day for day credit for time she served in custody since her arrest in November through Wednesday.
