The mother who admits to using meth in the days before her three children died in a house fire will serve time in the South Dakota Women's Prison.
Rhiannon White was sentenced to six years in prison in a Minnehaha County Courtroom Wednesday afternoon on felony drug possession charges. The judge noted she will be eligible for parole in 13 months.
White has admitted that she used meth in the days leading up to the deadly fire in December 2012. Tests in the emergency room following the fire found White had meth, marijuana and ecstasy in her system.
White could be heard crying during the sentencing and she spoke just briefly in court. She said she is working her way through the 12 steps to deal with her addiction.
