WOODSTOCK – A McHenry woman was sentenced to six years behind bars for her role in possessing and delivering heroin.
Serena M. Mee, 40, was charged last August with unlawful possession of a controlled substance, and charged again in January with unlawful delivery.
McHenry County Assistant State's Attorney Randi Freese said Mee possessed and delivered more than one gram of heroin, but less than 15 grams.
Mee pleaded guilty Tuesday to unlawful possession and delivery of a controlled substance, and received two- and four-year prison terms to be served consecutively.
As part of the agreement with her attorney, Special Public Defender David Giesinger, remaining drug charges were dropped, including those that had harsher punishments.
Her guilty plea was accepted by McHenry County Judge Gordon Graham.
