Woman arrested for using daughter to sell drugs
According to Searcy County Sheriff Kenny Cassell, Paula Marie Pfaff, age 34, of Marshall was arrested after providing drugs to her daughter to sell at school in Marshall. Cassell said his office was contacted by Deputy Craig Loggins concerning a juvenile female who had been caught by the Marshall School faculty while in possession of morphine tablets and a narcotics smoking device, which is considered drug paraphernalia.
Loggins reported that the juvenile female said her mother, Paula Marie Pfaff, gave her the morphine to sell at school. She also provided law enforcement with a written statement stating the same information. When this occurred, the juvenile was suspended from school and cited in juvenile court.
In January of this year during an interview with Searcy County investigators, Pfaff confessed she had given morphine tablets to her young daughter to sell. A witness, who is a friend of Pfaff's, provided law enforcement with a statement stating Pfaff had told them she was "giving her daughter" morphine tablets to sell.
Pfaff was arrested on July 30 and was transported to the Searcy County Detention Center where she was charged with delivery of a scheduled I/II controlled substance, Class C felony, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, Class A misdemeanor. She is scheduled to appear in Searcy County Circuit Court.
