United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Wagner, South Dakota, woman convicted of Conspiracy to Distribute Methamphetamine was sentenced on July 28, 2014, by U.S. District Judge Karen E. Schreier.

Brandy Angela Waetermans, age 31, was sentenced to 151 months in custody, three years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.
