Sentencing set in cocaine investigation with ties to Tennessee

Posted: Updated:

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - A sentencing hearing is scheduled Dec. 11 for a Como, Miss., woman charged with traveling from Mississippi to Tennessee to deliver money that came from the distribution of cocaine.

Takisha M. Harris was charged in July in a bill of criminal information, a charge usually filed when a person plans to waive indictment and plead guilty in a case.

Court records say she took $45,000 to Tennessee in the spring of 2012 that was to be used for the purchase of cocaine.

She pleaded guilty in July to two counts, conspiracy and bank fraud.

The bank fraud charge is related to an account she opened in the name of another man who was also charged in the case.

She will be sentenced in U.S. District Court in Oxford.
