CROWN POINT, Ind. (AP) - A 50-year-old woman from northwestern Indiana who admitted to helping her son smuggle drugs into jail will serve 30 days in a work release program.

The (Munster) Times reports (bit.ly/1RmurNR) Lake County Superior Court Judge Salvador Vasquez on Thursday gave 50-year-old Dawn Blaskovich of Hammond a two-year sentence, but ruled that after she serves time on work release, the rest of her sentence can be served on probation. She also must do community service.

Blaskovich had pleaded guilty to dealing in a controlled substance. She admitted to mailing letters containing a drug to her son Markus Blaskovich.

He was being held on a charge of murder and later pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter and was sentenced to 45 years in prison.
