Craig woman sentenced to 90 days in prison, three years probation following June 2020 drug bust

A Craig woman was sentenced to 90 days in jail and an additional three years probation during her sentencing hearing on Wednesday, Jan. 27.

Nancy Grijalba, 47, was officially booked into Moffat County Jail on Wednesday.

Grijalba will serve 90 days behind bars after receiving her sentence from 14th Judicial District Court Judge Sandra Gardner. Once out of jail, Grijalba will be on probation for three years, according to sentencing documents.

The Craig resident was previously arrested on June 9, 2020 by officers from the All Crimes Enforcement Team.

On June 9, officers from the All Crimes Enforcement Team, with the assistance of Federal Law Enforcement Agencies, intercepted just over 3 pounds of methamphetamine and prevented it from making its way onto the streets of Northwest Colorado.

Grijalba was arrested in connection with the investigation and charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, a class 1 drug felony, and child abuse, a class 3 misdemeanor, according to the District Attorney’s Office of the 14th Judicial District.

At her sentencing hearing, Grijalba pleaded guilty to the felony charge of possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute. However, a second felony for controlled substance by a special offender was dismissed by the District Attorney’s office, as was the misdemeanor child abuse charge.

Grijalba was also ordered to pay $7,125.50 in assessed fines and costs in her sentencing hearing.
