The 18-year-old daughter of Georgetown Police Chief David Morgan pleaded guilty to a cocaine possession charge Wednesday, officials said. Samantha Ann Morgan was originally charged with assault on a public servant, evading arrest, possession of a controlled substance and delivery of marijuana, which could have added up to more than 30 years in prison if convicted on all counts.

Williamson County District Attorney John Bradley said in a story in Wednesday's online edition of the Austin American-Statesman that the evidence didn't support those charges and a plea deal offered to her was standard.

According to an affidavit, the cocaine was discovered during a strip search at the jail after she was arrested on June 18 following a traffic stop involving a vehicle in which she was riding.

The plea deal calls for five years probation, 30 days of jail time and a $2,500 fine.

District Judge Ken Anderson set sentencing for Oct. 17, when he will either accept the plea deal, or set the case for jury trial.
