MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A Woodbury teenager has pleaded guilty for her role in the death of a 17-year-old girl who overdosed on a synthetic drug.

The teen admitted Friday to a felony charge of conspiring to sell and deliver a controlled substance to someone under 18. The Associated Press is not naming her because she was 17 at the time of Tara Fitzgerald’s death.

She was sentenced to serve 18 weekends in jail and 200 hours of community service. She also received a 57-month prison sentence, but won’t serve that as long as she follows the law until age 21.

Fitzgerald died in January 2014 after ingesting what she believed was LSD. The substance was the synthetic drug 25i-NBOMe.

Two adults have been convicted of third-degree murder and two other teens face charges.
