A waitress accused by Huntington Beach police of selling cocaine at a downtown restaurant and bar pleaded guilty last week to aiding in the sale of drugs.

Brynn Ashley Boucher, 24, was sentenced to three years of formal probation and a day in jail. She also was ordered to pay fines as well as $2,000 to the Victim Witness Emergency Fund.

Initially, police said Boucher, while working at the Killarney Pub & Grill, sold cocaine to undercover officers on three different occasions in March, April and May. Those felony charges were dismissed.

Boucher is still employed by Killarney, according to her attorney, Ron Chrislip. And Farrah Emami, a spokeswoman for the Orange County district attorney, told the Huntington Beach Independent. that Boucher did not sell the drugs.

"She was working in a bar and she put the officers in contact with the other defendant, the male defendant," Emami said. "She was an accessory in that she put the officers in contact, but she herself did not sell drugs."
