Woman Gets Prison Time In Drug Distribution Case

Woman Gets Prison Time In Drug Distribution Case

A southeast South Dakota woman has been sentenced to nearly 11 years in prison in a drug distribution and money laundering case.

U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson says 29-year-old Thiphavanh Noy Khaleck had pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance and conspiracy to commit money laundering.

U.S. District Judge Karen E. Schreier sentenced the woman to 130 months in custody.

Authorities allege that Khaleck and five other people conspired to distribute methamphetamine and marijuana in Sioux Falls. Some traveled to California and Minnesota to buy the drugs.

Authorities say Khaleck and a co-defendant conspired to commit money laundering by keeping the deposits and withdrawals of cash drug proceeds below $10,000 in an effort to avoid bank reporting requirements.
