Robert Jeffrey Farrow

    A 52-year-old Hailey man has been sentenced to 90 days in the Blaine County jail for selling cocaine two years ago to a police confidential informant.
    Sentence for Robert Jeffrey Farrow was pronounced Monday by Judge Robert J. Elgee in Blaine County 5th District Court. Elgee also gave Farrow a five-year suspended prison sentence and placed him on probation for three years.


Farrow was originally charged with two felony counts of delivery of cocaine.



    Farrow was given credit for two days already spent in jail. He was given until Monday, Sept. 17, to report to the jail to begin serving his sentence. Elgee further ordered that Farrow be allowed work release while incarcerated.
    Farrow was originally charged with two felony counts of delivery of cocaine. In a plea agreement with the Blaine County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, he agreed to plead guilty to a single count of delivery in exchange for dismissal of the second count. He pleaded guilty to the charge in April.
    The Blaine County Narcotics Enforcement Team reported earlier that Farrow was charged with the crimes for making two cocaine sales in September 2010 to a police confidential informant.
    Farrow had remained free on $10,000 bond following his arrest in November 2011.
