GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - A Hudson, Fla., woman has pleaded guilty in a federal drug-trafficking investigation that identified her as the source of oxycodone pills brought to Harrison County, Miss., during visits to Coast hotels.
The Sun Herald reports (http://bitly.com/YhMLJ7 ) 60-year-old Gail Ann Owens accepted a plea agreement Monday to a charge of possession with intent to distribute oxycodone, a prescription pain-killer.
She faces maximum penalties of 20 years in prison and a $1 million fine at her sentencing Jan. 23 in federal court in Gulfport.
A grand jury had charged her and several others in a six-count indictment following their arrests in December 2010, when drug agents said they found Owens and a man with 374 oxycodone pills in a hotel room in Biloxi.
