BANGOR, Maine (AP) - A Maine woman has pleaded guilty in federal court to allowing her home to be a site for using and distributing drugs.

Prosecutors say that 42-year-old Amy Hakola, of Orono, allowed her home to be used by a group of men from New Haven, Connecticut, to distribute crack from 2010 to 2013. They said she was aware that digital scales, packaging materials and drugs were at her home.

Prosecutors also said on occasion, Hakola drove the men from her home to different locations in the Bangor area so that they could deliver drugs and that they shared powder cocaine with her.

A sentencing date has not been scheduled. Hakola, who pleaded guilty Monday, faces up to 20 years in prison and a $500,000 fine.
