LIBERTY, Mo. -- A Kansas City woman was sentenced to 12 years in prison for selling methamphetamine while her children were present.
The Kansas City Star reports 35-year-old Lori C. Owsley was sentenced Thursday for selling the drug to an undercover officer at her home twice in the summer of 2011. The officer was part of the Clay County Drug Task Force.
Clay County Prosecutor Daniel L. White says several of her children, including a 5-year-old, were present during one drug transaction. At the second drug sale, Owsley used four teens as lookouts while several police patrol cars were near her home.
Owsley also pleaded guilty Thursday to two counts of child endangerment.
