Woman From Colorado Springs Receives Federal Prison Sentence For Dealing Xanax To Her Son

Wagswoofs – A mother from Colorado Springs was recently sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for selling Xanax to her own 16-year-old son.

Maria Davis-Conchie, a 49-year-old woman, has been sentenced by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the District of Colorado. The announcement of her sentence was made on Thursday.

According to the plea agreement, the U.S. Attorney’s Office has revealed that Davis-Conchie engaged in the illegal distribution of controlled substances to her teenage son and his friends for at least a year leading up to January 30, 2022. The statement highlights that Davis-Conchie repeatedly sold alprazolam (Xanax), a Schedule IV controlled substance, to the teenagers. She would provide them with Xanax at prices ranging from $5 to $10 per pill, along with cautionary instructions to not consume excessive amounts of the drug at once. It is worth noting that during this period, Davis-Conchie’s son and one of his friends would use Xanax every weekend, although not all of the Xanax they consumed came from Davis-Conchie herself.

Davis-Conchie’s son tragically lost his life after ingesting a pill that had been tainted with fentanyl. It is believed that Davis-Conchie herself introduced her son to two individuals who allegedly sold him the lethal pill.

According to the release, during the sentencing, it was revealed that Davis-Conchie had introduced her son to co-defendants Douglas Floyd and Marlene McGuire in order for him to purchase fentanyl pills from them. Floyd pleaded guilty to a conspiracy to distribute fentanyl and para-fluorofentanyl, which led to the death of Davis-Conchie’s son, and he was sentenced to 157 months in federal prison on November 21, 2023. On September 22, 2023, McGuire was convicted by a federal jury for distributing fentanyl and para-fluorofentanyl, resulting in the death of Davis-Conchie’s son and other charges. McGuire’s sentencing is set for January 19, 2024.

According to reports, Davis-Conchie held the belief that her son would engage in drug use regardless of her actions. Consequently, she made the decision to provide him and his friends with drugs that she considered to be “safe.”

U.S. Attorney Cole Finegan expressed his concerns about the case, stating that it highlights the alarming reality that many families in America face on a daily basis. He emphasized the devastating consequences of reckless decision-making combined with the use of a lethal drug, which not only resulted in the tragic death of a child but also shattered a family.

On Wednesday, the sentence was given, which included three years of probation.
