Ashley Rose Newman, a 21-year-old female theater student at the University of Alabama, is in a world of hurt for pushing drugs on campus.
Homegirl got slapped with all kinds of charges when she was caught with a whole mess of goodies.
Ashley Rose Newman, 21, is charged with trafficking in Fentanyl, unlawful possession with intent to distribute, three counts of unlawful possession of a controlled substance, first-degree unlawful possession of marijuana and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia, said Tuscaloosa police Lt. Teena Richardson.
According to Newman’s Facebook page, she is a theater student at UA. She is from Mandeville, Louisiana.
Newman was arrested by agents from the West Alabama Narcotics Task Force after a raid at her home in the 300 block of 27th Street North at 9 a.m. today. Richardson said agents recovered 23.3 grams of Fentanyl, a quantity of methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA), amphetamine, cocaine HCL, marijuana and assorted drug paraphernalia.
Gotta pay that tuition somehow. Theater girls were always on the crazier side. For those of you who don’t know, Fentanyl is an synthetic, opioid-based pain killer.
I gotta say, $1.5 million bail is fucking absurd for the amount of drugs she had. In my opinion, that’s absurd for any nonviolent offense. We got rapists like Brock Turner getting a slap on the wrist but pushing drugs is still the real crime, apparently.
Tuscaloosa has absolutely zero sympathy for drug crimes, though. It’s the kind of place where the general sentiment seems to be, “WELL THEN YOU SHOULDN’T HAVE BROKEN THE LAW IN THE FIRST PLACE ROOOLLL TAAWWWD!” We’re talking about a police force that barged into a student dormitory in full riot gear and arrested dozens of students for weed a couple years ago. Not to advocate pain killer abuse, but Bama is not the place to catch a high. Hope they don’t lock this poor girl up for too long..
