White sentenced to 30 years

Wednesday, December 7, 2005

A Le Mars woman convicted to multiple drug offenses was sentenced to 30 years in prison Tuesday in Plymouth County District Court.

Monica White, 41, was earlier found guilty on two counts of delivery of methamphetamine within 1,000 feet of a public park and two counts of prohibited acts. She had also been charged with possessing a prescription medication without a prescription.

Delivery of methaphetamine within 1,000 feet of a public park is a Class B felony. Prohibited acts is a Class D felony.

White faced up to 65 years in prison, had she been convicted and handed the maximum sentence. District Court Judge Jeffrey A. Neary handed down concurrent sentences of 30 and 25 years on the two delivery convictions and two years each on the two prohibited acts convictions.

She received a one-third-of-one-third reduction in her sentence for pleading guilty. She also will receive credit for time already served in the Plymouth County Law Enforcement Center.

White was fined $11,000, all but $1,000 suspended, and ordered to pay $480 in restitution to the Le Mars Police Department. Her driving privileges have been revoked in accordance with Iowa law.
