Woman sentenced for buying meth ingredients

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — A 36-year-old Juneau woman has been sentenced to two years in prison for purchasing ingredients to make methamphetamine.

The Juneau Empire (http://bit.ly/1dMl4kt) reports Jennifer Hartsock pleaded guilty in July to buying more than the legal amount of listed chemicals and possessing chemicals with intent to manufacture meth.

Juneau Superior Court Judge Louis Menendez sentenced Hartsock to seven years in prison with five suspended, a plea deal Hartsock made with prosecutors.

Alaska State Trooper investigators say officers obtained video of Hartsock and her boyfriend buying twice the legal amount of pseudoephedrine at Juneau pharmacies.

Investigators say they bought the cold medicine for two men charged with making the methamphetamine in October in Hoonah.

Hartsock apologized in court and said she has completed the drug addiction treatment since she’s been jailed.
