SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

A woman has been sentenced to 60 months in prison for her role in a methamphetamine distribution conspiracy.

36-year-old Haylee N. Haigler was sentenced on one count of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine. The announcement was made Friday by acting U.S. Attorney Alexander C. Van Hook.

According to the January 11 guilty plea, law enforcement agents arrested Haigler’s boyfriend, Lee Edward Watkins, 36, of Shreveport, on July 20, 2016 after observing him selling methamphetamine in the parking lot of Haigler’s apartment complex.

Upon his arrest, Watkins admitted to selling the drugs and said there were more drugs and firearms in Haigler’s apartment.

Agents found additional methamphetamine and three pistols there. They say, Haigler later admitted that she assisted in the drug dealing and sometimes traveled with Watkins to Texas to obtain more drugs.

Judge Hicks sentenced Watkins on January 30, 2017 to 120 months in prison and five years of supervised release for the conspiracy count and for one count of possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime. 

Haigler was also sentenced to four years of supervised release.
