PORTALES, N.M. (AP) — A Port[auth] ales woman has been sentenced to two years in prison for selling drugs.

Prosecutors say 27-year-old Latisha Shipley was sentenced Thursday after being convicted by a jury in August of possession with the intent to traffic methamphetamine.

She will be on five years of probation after completing the prison term.

Portales police say they confronted Shipley on the Eastern New Mexico University campus where she was a student at the time.

Shipley allegedly admitted to officers that she sold meth and they say she produced two baggies of the drug packaged for sale.

Police say telephone records also showed that Shipley was involved in the sale of methamphetamine.
