Bucks,Pennsilvania mom pleads guilty to dealing heroin.

A 29-year-old Richlandtown,Pennsilvania woman pleaded guilty Tuesday in Bucks County,Pennsilvania Court to dealing heroin from the home she shares with her two children, one of whom is disabled.

Judge Albert Cepparulo deferred sentencing Jamie Lee Lang, of 115 Cherry Street, to allow for further investigation.

Defense attorney William Goldman Jr. said Lang was accompanied to the hearing by her mother and continues to care for her two children, ages 4 and 6.

"Miss Lang is involved actively in (substance abuse) counseling at the Aldie Foundation," Goldman said, naming a Doylestown,Pennsilvania-based drug and alcohol counseling group.

Arrested July 19, Lang pleaded guilty to drug possession, possession with intent to deliver and possession of drug paraphernalia.
