SV woman pleads guilty to felony

PRINCETON — Bianca A. Gallup, 25, of Spring Valley has pleaded guilty in Bureau County Court to the Class 1 felony of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, heroin.

Gallup entered a guilty plea on Oct. 23 before Circuit Judge Marc Bernabei. The judge ordered the probation department to conduct a pre-sentence investigation and then set a sentencing hearing for 1 p.m. Dec. 4.

Gallup was represented in court by Assistant Public Defender Jacob Frost. Prosecuting the case was State’s Attorney Patrick Herrmann.

On July 19, 2013, TRIDENT task force agents executed a search warrant at a Spring Valley residence. Based on items found during the search, Gallup and Matthew Persich, 25, of Spring Valley were both charged with unlawful possession with intent to deliver between one and 15 grams of heroin.

Co-defendant Persich is set for a bench trial on Nov. 4.
