The Fall Of The Couch Of Usher

A wanted woman who police recently discovered hiding inside a hotel couch has been sentenced to serve two years in prison for drug dealing, records show.

Stacy Usher, 39, was arrested last year after she sold fentanyl to a police informant in Citrus County, Florida.

Earlier this year, Usher pleaded no contest to a pair of felony counts and was sentenced to 24 months of probation, as well as drug offender conditions that included random testing and a prohibition against consuming alcohol.

In late-October, Usher was accused of violating terms of her probation, and a judge subsequently issued an arrest warrant for her. Usher would later beg not to be violated, since she claimed her life would be in danger if sent to prison (Usher said she had once been a “primary witness” against someone who received a 20-year sentence).

Cops caught up to Usher last month at the Bella Oasis Hotel, which advertises itself asthe best hotel in Homosassa Springs, Florida.” As seen in the above police photo, Usher had actually burrowed into a couch in a bid to hide from sheriff’s deputies.

After being extracted from the furniture, Usher was booked into roomier accomodations at the county jail.

Usher, whose rap sheet includes worthless check, fraud, and grand theft convictions, appeared earlier this month in Circuit Court, where a judge revoked her probation and sentenced her to 24 months in state prison.

Usher will soon be committed to the custody of Florida’s Department of Corrections, which does not outfit its dormitories or cells with love seats.
