SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A Sioux Falls woman has been sentenced to five years and eight months in federal prison for her role in a methamphetamine distribution ring.

The Argus Leader (https://argusne.ws/1Rav6zX ) reports that Kayla Ray Ridgway was convicted of federal conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance. She had faced up to 20 years in federal prison.

Ridgway was arrested in March after police served a search warrant on the vehicle she was riding in and found 53 grams of meth in her purse.

A co-defendant, Michael Guy Nelson, was sentenced in November to eight years and three months on a conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance charge. Court records show police found 202 grams of meth in his pocket during the traffic stop.

Another co-defendant, Beau Cameron Dyvig, is awaiting sentencing.
