Bismarck woman sentenced in day care drug bust

BISMARCK — A Bismarck woman who ran a day care in a home that authorities say was the base for a drug-dealing operation has pleaded guilty to marijuana possession and child neglect.

Carli Jo Burghart was given a deferred jail sentence and put on supervised probation for three years. She must complete 50 hours of community service work and cannot provide day care services without the approval of her probation officer and social services officials.

Three other people who lived in the home were charged in the case. Two have pleaded guilty to drug charges. The third is to stand trial within the next couple of months.

Police say several children were in the home when officers executed a search warrant last November and found marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
