LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – A Grand Island woman will spend over four years behind bars after she sold meth to an informant, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said Friday.

Kendra Baker, 37, was sentenced to 4½ years in prison for the distribution of 50 grams or more of a mixture containing meth and 5 grams or more of actual methamphetamine.

In 2021, investigators used a “confidential informant” to arrange a drug deal with Baker, according to the attorney’s office.

From March to April, the informant bought meth four times from Baker in Grand Island and Hastings.

In total, the informant purchased 125 grams of meth, the attorney’s office said.

After her prison sentence, Baker will serve a three-year term of supervised release.  There is no parole in the federal system.
