LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – A Lincoln woman was sentenced in federal court on Friday for conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.

Ashley Nicole Lapointe, 36, was sentenced to just more than five years in prison for possession with intent to distribute 500 grams or more of a meth mixture.

After serving her 70-month prison sentence, Lapointe will be placed on supervised release for five years.  There is no parole in the federal system.

From Oct. 13, 2018, to June 30, 2021, Lapointe conspired with at least 12 others to distribute meth in the Lincoln area, the Department of Justice says.

During that time, Lapointe purchased meth in 1/16-ounce to half-pound quantities to resell to others.

She sold meth in quantities ranging from 1.75 grams to 2 ounces to at least six people.

During the Lincoln Police Department’s investigation, Lapointe purchased and distributed more than 500 grams of meth.

This case was investigated by LPD and the Lincoln/Lancaster County Narcotics Task Force.
