A Minot woman will spend seven years in prison after admitting to selling meth on two separate occasions in the city.
39-year-old Julie James pleaded guilty to two counts of selling methamphetamines on August 28th and September 3rd.
The guilty pleas to the Class-A Felony counts came after a plea deal that dropped the charges from Class-Double-A Felony status - a level that carries a maximum life in prison sentence.
The state also dropped five other felony charges in exchange for the guilty pleas.
Judge William McLees sentenced James to seven years in the state penitentiary, followed by five years of probation.
