A Sioux Falls woman arrested in May for having drugs in Bon Homme County was sentenced Tuesday to five years in prison.
Kimberly Hare, 45, was ordered to serve her prison time for possession of methamphetamine concurrently with a Clay County conviction for the same charge.
On May 6, Hare was a passenger in a vehicle stopped by a South Dakota Highway Patrol officer, who found marijuana, methamphetamine, a scale with methamphetamine residue on it, a weight and plastic bags in the vehicle.
Hare's urine sample tested positive for meth, and she was charged with possession with intent to distribute three or more schedule I or II-related items, possession and unauthorized ingestion of methamphetamine, possession of two ounces of marijuana or less and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Hare pleaded guilty Tuesday to one count of possession of a controlled substance in schedules I or II, a Class 5 felony for which she was given the maximum prison sentence. The remaining charges were dismissed, and she was ordered to pay $106.50 in court costs.
