LINCOLN, Neb. -- A 35-year-old Colorado woman was sentenced to federal court in Lincoln on Monday for drug charges. 

The Acting U.S. Attorney announced that Tina Smith was sentenced for conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine. 

The U.S. District Judge sentenced Smith to 57 months in prison.

Smith was found responsible for at least 30 grams of actual meth.

Brown is scheduled to enter a plea of guilty on Oct. 13, 2022.
