An Elgin woman was sentenced to jail time and probation Wednesday morning in District Court.
Jamie Hawkins represented by Pat Kearney was charge for one count of delivery of a controlled substance (methamphetamine), a class 2A Felony.
After an incident occurring September of 2016, Hawkins explained that the delivery was only for a ‘friend.’ Although that may have been the case, Antelope County Attorney Joe Abler explained that consuming and possessing is an entirely different crime compared to the delivery of a controlled substance.
Both Judge James Kube and Abler stressed that the delivery is the sole problem in the spreading of these substances in society.
Hawkins was sentenced to one year of probation, along with 90 days in jail, 29 days credited, and 10 days served immediately.
