A Watertown woman admitted Tuesday in Jefferson County Court that she was found with heroin and marijuana at her home in March.

Tiajonte M. Sargent, 22, pleaded guilty to third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of marijuana. She admitted that she, along with her husband, Ethan P., 30, possessed heroin with the intent to sell the drug March 8 at their residence at 677 Bronson St., Apt. 4, and that she also had a small amount of marijuana at the time.

She is expected to be sentenced July 20 to six months in the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building, followed by five years’ probation. Charges of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of marijuana remain pending against Mr. Sargent.
