Tooele woman pleads guilty to two felony drug charges

A Tooele woman pleaded guilty to two felony drug charges in 3rd District Court on Tuesday morning.

Rusti Jo Stalliviere, 32, pleaded guilty to two counts of second-degree distribution of a controlled substance from separate court cases. Both charges were amended from first-degree felonies. Four additional first-degree distribution of a controlled substance charges were dismissed as part of a plea deal with the state.

A second-degree felony in Utah is punishable by one to 15 years in prison and a fine of $10,000.

According to a police report on the case, Stalliviere sold small amounts of heroin from her home to confidential informants with the Tooele Drug and Gang Task Force in four separate incidents between October 2014 and January 2015. She also sold four oxycodone pills to another confidential informant in April 2014.

In each incident, the informant received either $40 or $60 to purchase the drugs from Stalliviere, according to the report. The packets of black tar heroin weighed approximately .3 or .4 grams.

Sentencing for Stalliviere is scheduled for May 26 at 9 a.m. in the Tooele County Courthouse.
