An additional methamphetamine charge from a 2010 Olympic Peninsula Narcotics Enforcement Team, or OPNET, case was dismissed as part of a plea agreement that Smith signed Jan. 29 in Clallam County Superior Court, OPNET Supervisor Jason Viada said Tuesday.
Smith was sentenced to 22 months for the attempting to elude charge and 12 months for the possession of methamphetamine charge, according to the minutes of the sentencing hearing.
A Clallam County sheriff’s deputy attempted to stop a Volkswagen Jetta driven by Smith in the Agnew area Feb. 8, 2013, according to the certification for probable cause.
The deputy observed Smith throwing a small plastic bag out of the window of the car during a 60 mph pursuit in a 35 mph zone, court papers said.
The contents of the bag thrown out the window, and another bag found in Smith’s wallet, tested positive for methamphetamine, court papers said.
The suspected drug weighed a combined 14.6 grams with packaging.
