Arrest details on mom of Bristol Palin’s boyfriend

December 26, 2008


— The mother of Bristol Palin’s boyfriend sent text messages to two police informants discussing drug transactions before her arrest on felony drug charges, authorities say.

An affidavit filed Monday says Sherry L. Johnston sent text messages referring to “coffee” as a code for the drug OxyContin.

The 42-year-old Johnston was arrested last week after state troopers served a search warrant at her Wasilla home. She is out on bail.

Johnston is the mother of 18-year-old Levi Johnston. Gov. Sarah Palin announced in September that her 18-year-old daughter Bristol was pregnant and Johnston was the father.

Authorities say the case began in the second week of September — a couple of weeks into Palin’s campaign as Republican vice presidential candidate — when drug investigators intercepted a package containing 179 OxyContin pills. That led to the arrest of the suspects, who agreed to be informants.

Teenage pregnancy and drugs. Are these the new conservative family values?

BigPrune 9 years, 5 months ago

What, no pleading to legalize drugs from the leftists?

Some details! Was she trying to distribute or buying a small amount? Is she a 'coup' for the detectives and informants because of a tenuous connection at best? Pathetic.

Hmm...I wonder if the wedding is still on? Or was Palin lying about that as well?

When do we get to see the details on the millions of dollars of illegal contributions to the O'dude's campaign?

Ahhh..... The Wasilla Hillbillies. Will the fun never cease?

But, but, but, The Big O has assured us that there is no such thing as "guilt by association."

Flap Doodle 9 years, 5 months ago

This so much more important than the O'dude's aunt who is an illegal alien in this country. Or his half-brother living in total poverty. Or the hundreds of millions of dollars in illegal campaign contributions he got from foreign interests.

Strontius, am I missing where it says she or her son are conservatives or Repubs? I'm a moderate but I'm engaged to a liberal...does that make my mom a liberal?

Now that Obama's rise to the presidency has eliminated drug use, having a dysfunctional childhood, and adult associations with terrorists and criminals as a disqualification for the presidency, I do not see how this examination of Sarah Palin's daughter's boyfriend's mother's drug addiction has anything to do with anything. In fact, it should further validate Palin as a viable future presidential candidate. It demonstrates that she is "one of us."

Speak for yourself, Godot. Lots of "us" aren't white trash skanks like Palin and her clan.

Godot 9 years, 5 months ago

We are mentioning Obama because it was his "in the pocket" media who set out to destroy the family of Sarah Palin and anyone connected to her. Had the Obama faithful not set out to destroy his most threatening competitor, we would not even know who this woman is, and we would not be subjecting her and her family to racist insults made by the likes of Obamaniacs.

For those who want a few more details:Troopers charged Johnston with second-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance -- generally manufacturing or delivering drugs -- as well as fourth-degree misconduct involving controlled substances, or possession.Sherry Johnston was arrested around noon and booked at Mat-Su Pretrial Facility, according to a booking officer there. She was released on a $5,000 unsecured bond just after 2 p.m.

Don't worry about Palin getting this lady off the hook. She couldn't even fire a state trooper who threatened to kill her father and tasered her 11 year old nephew. Of course, the leftist media lambasted her for "abuse of power" even though she was cleared.No, this is a left wing conspiracy and they will be interjecting little negative tidbits about Palin until they no longer consider her a threat to the Great One. Just watch. If Palin's approval ratings drop from 85% to 80% it will be headline news that "Palin's approval ratings drop dramatically." The American people are smart. Before this past election they thought the Republicans controlled Congress.

I am still unclear as to why Sarah Palin's daughter's boyfriend's mother sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Ferris pass out at 31 Flavors last night is newsworthy?

Jennifer Forth 9 years, 4 months ago

Ferris and 31 flavors - good one! Still a slow news day.

"Strontius, am I missing where it says she or her son are conservatives or Repubs?"That's when you have to go outside the article. They are a bunch of right-wing rednecks.

Trying to help the O'dude choke off the First Amendment, max1?

Flap Doodle 9 years, 4 months ago

max1 is actually entering his own words instead of copy/pasting? I'm shocked I tell you, shocked.

jaywalker 9 years, 4 months ago

Max's mommy's search engine must be down. Unfortunately he's still unable to actually form his own opinion on the argument at hand, but writing full sentences by himself has to be looked on as a step in the right direction.

The right extremists on this board has lost so the elections, in the public opinion, in their soul that they are now loosing it mentally, it is funny to see you guys wiggle and squirm, but you have failed, and failed miserably, failed America, Failed God and failed your parents who I am sure are ashamed to have bore such ignorant children.I am sure Marion, who has long since gone over the edge with his extremist anti-semitism will be glad to see more of your failures at his side.

"I will say that every president that has shown anti-gun tendencies have had the reverse effect on gun ownership."That could just mean that we Americans are driven primarily by the noble emotion of spite. I think we could find some support for that theory.
