KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - A Kansas City woman has pleaded guilty to selling heroin that led to one of her customers nearly dying.

The customer overdosed at a home in Overland Park, Kansas, in April 2016. She was found unconscious and revived when emergency responders administered Narcan.

After the near-death experience, the user began cooperating with investigations into drug activity of 34-year-old Loretta Gilliard. The drug user had purchased heroin from GIlliard about 100 times and made several more buys while cooperating with investigators.

Gilliard pleaded guilty Tuesday to conspiracy to distribute heroin. Under a plea deal, she will serve seven years in prison.
