NAKINA, N.C. (AP) - Hours after a woman pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting children in South Carolina, authorities in North Carolina say she was slumped over in a vehicle with drugs.

News outlets cite a Columbus County Sheriff’s Office release that says marijuana, cocaine, and the generic form of Xanax were found in 31-year-old Lindsey Honeycutt’s car Tuesday. Although she pleaded guilty to child sex crimes earlier that day, her sentencing was delayed to allow testimony in co-defendants’ trials.

She’s now charged with several drug possession counts. Solicitor Jimmy Richardson says her new charges will play a part in her sentencing.

He says his office needs her help with at least one more trial.

A Horry County, South Carolina police report related to the four defendants’ arrests says the two victims were under 6.
