PIKEVILLE, Ky. — One week after her co-defendant entered a guilty plea in a federal drug case, a Pike County woman is asking to do the same.

Christina Tidwell, 33, of McCarr, is currently charged with conspiracy to distribute 500 grams or more of meth. The charge carries a potential sentence ranging from 10 years to life in prison.

On April 26, her co-defendant, Brian Keith Wells, 44, also of McCarr, pleaded guilty to the same charge.

Now, Tidwell says she has reached a plea agreement with prosecutors. A judge has scheduled a rearraignment hearing for Wednesday.
