A jury found Nichole Marsh of Los Alamos guilty Friday of possession of a controlled substance – methamphetamine following a day-long trial before First Judicial District Judge Jason Lidyard at the Los Alamos Justice Center. The jury found Marsh not guilty of the second degree felony trafficking count and opted to find her guilty of a fourth degree felony possession.

Marsh had been accused of trafficking methamphetamine to a Los Alamos Police Department confidential informant in January 2017.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Kent Wahlquist and Marsh was defended by Attorney Markus Kolber.
