A Mitchell woman pleaded guilty Tuesday to two counts of possession of a controlled substance, methamphetamine, and was sentenced to four years of probation.

Jazzmin Jennings, 26, entered her plea during circuit court at the Davison County Public Safety Center. She was arrested in November on the first possession charge, and while out on bond she was arrested in December on a second charge.

Assistant Attorney General Doug Barnett asked Judge Chris Giles to keep Jennings on "a very short leash" and to ensure she does not have contact with a co-defendant, Steven Koster.

Giles sentenced Jennings to two consecutive five-year suspended prison terms, meaning she has 10 years of prison time hanging over her head if she doesn't comply during her four years of probation. Giles also sentenced her to 90 days in county jail, with credit for 36 days served, and she will pay $104 court costs and $108 in prosecution costs.

Jennings is already in a treatment program at Stepping Stones in Mitchell, but if she fails to complete the program, Giles ordered her to immediately report to the county jail.
