DEVILS LAKE-A Ramsey County judge sentenced six felons Tuesday, none of whom were given prison time.

Four people pleaded guilty to felony drug delivery charges after they sold prescription pain pills to drug informants on separate occasions this year, according to a news release from the Ramsey County State's Attorney's Office. Their sentences were all deferred, and they will be placed on supervised probation for 18 months to three years.

Those sentenced include Jodie Maree Borgen, 60, Gregory Allan Reiger, 54, Chance Matthew Sailor, 25, and Stanley Russell Touche, 47, all of Devils Lake.

Tammy Mallecocci Johnson, 48, Devils Lake, was convicted of several drug-related charges after a Ramsey County deputy found about 17 grams of marijuana in six packages and a small amount of methamphetamine in her home while serving her with an eviction notice in October, according to the release. Johnson's sentence was deferred for two years, and she will be placed on supervised probation for that period of time.

Brandon Burdick, 31, Devils Lake, also was sentenced Tuesday. He was convicted for felony theft after he used a stolen debit card at two Devils Lake businesses. When he was arrested, he tested positive for methamphetamine and was charged and convicted of misdemeanor ingestion of drugs.

He did not show up to a court hearing, was charged with felony bail jumping and was re-arrested a few weeks later. He was convicted of the bail jumping charge.

Burdick was sentenced to three years of supervised probation, though he could be ordered to serve prison time if he violates his terms of probation.
