United States Attorney Joe Kelly announced that Janalee M. Ramirez, 35, of Lincoln, Nebraska, was sentenced today to five years and three months, (63 months), in federal prison, by Chief United States District John M. Gerrard, for conspiracy to distribute 50 grams or more of actual (pure) methamphetamine and 500 grams or more of methamphetamine mixture.  Following the prison term, Ramirez will serve three years on supervised release.  There is no parole in the federal system.

During that search, two baggies containing methamphetamine residue were found.  At that time, Ramirez admitted to officers that she had about five methamphetamine customers who were buying ¼ ounce to ½ ounce quantities at a time.

This case was investigated by the Lincoln/Lancaster County Narcotics Task Force.
