A 25-year-old mother of one has pleaded guilty to multiple charges including two counts of drug possession, sending her to jail for about three months.

Jessica Fedyk, of Red Deer, pleaded guilty to multiple charges including theft and possession of gammahydroxybutonic acid, GHB, and methamphetamine on Thursday in Red Deer provincial court before Judge Gordon Deck.

She was sentenced to 14 days in jail on the theft charge and 90 days on the drug charges. Less her 22 days served, she has 82 days left on her sentence.

Fedyk was arrested on March 27 when the RCMP executed a search warrant at an apartment near the intersection of 46th Avenue and 50th Street.

During the search, police located a small bottle of GHB and a small amount of meth in her purse, along with her wallet and identification.

Also arrested during the raid was Ryan Karol, 30, of Red Deer. He was charged with possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking, possession of a prohibited weapon and breach of recognizance. Karol remains in custody and returns to court May 2.

Prior to Fedyk’s March 27 arrest, she was also wanted on theft charges in relation to an incident at Big Gold Pawnshop in Red Deer.

She entered the pawn shop on Gaetz Avenue to sell a few items and as the merchant examined them, she took items from the store, including an in-dash stereo.

She managed to leave the store and it wasn’t until the store’s surveillance was reviewed that the theft was noticed.

The defence said she has a number of mental health issues, including attention deficit disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, anxiety and depression.

Fedyk apologized from the prisoner’s box.
