Albuquerque woman gets 5 years in prison for selling the painkiller oxycodone


ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico — An Albuquerque woman who pleaded guilty to selling the painkiller oxycodone was sentenced Thursday in federal court to more than five years in prison.

Authorities say 53-year-old Crystal Staggs sold 245 oxycodone pills to an undercover agent in June and July of 2012 and tried to sell an additional 100 pills to an undercover agent in August 2012.

Staggs pleaded guilty in April to possession with intent to distribute the painkiller.
