LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — A Lincoln woman will spend 16 years in prison after being caught with 100 grams of meth, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

U.S. District Judge John M. Gerrard sentenced Connie Robinson, 33, on Friday for possession with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of actual methamphetamine.

On April 14, 2022, a Lincoln Police officer saw a car in a hotel parking lot that had license plates that did not match the registration.

The officer approached and smelled marijuana, prompting a search, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

Police found a fanny pack where Robinson was sitting. Inside were a pipe, bags, a scale and about 98 grams of pure meth.

They also found about 2.4 grams of meth and drug paraphernalia in a sunglasses case.

Robinson was previously convicted of delivery of a controlled substance, so the minimum sentence for this charge was 15 years.

After her prison, she will serve a 10-year term of supervised release.

There is no parole in the federal system.
