A Kinston woman will spend the next 10 years behind bars for trying to sell meth.

22 year old Yadira Avilez-Lopez was sentenced in Federal Court for the crime.

In June, she pleaded guilty to possession with the intent to distribute more than 50 grams of methamphetamine.

Following her 10 years behind bars, she'll have 50 years of supervised release.

    No one has twisted anyones arm and made them become Meth addicts,crackheads, potheads,or coke sniffers. They done it on their own.Maybe it helps weed the fools and idiots out of the gene pool.I'm 49 years old, and I have never even tasted alcohol, smoked tobacco, or any kind of illegal drug. The ONLY drugs I have ever used were prescribed to me by a physician, and I used them as they were prescribed.But I guess I had an advantage. I had a Grandmother that told me if I did any of those things, I was going to the bad place(HELL).

    50 grams is less than 2 ounces. 10 years in prison plus 50 years probation? RIDICULOUS! The judge must have been having a really bad day.

    Meth Zombies are everywhere! Those addicted are isolated in an alternative reality where nothing else matters but their next meth fix. With long term use it alters their brain permanently. In the movies Zombies seek to eat the brains of non-zombies. In real life Meth Zombies destroy their own brains. In 5-10-20 years, Meth Addiction brain injuries will exceed Alzheimer's Disease cases. Where Alzheimer's normally effects those over 65, Meth Addiction permanent brain injuries occur after 2 years of prolonged use. Many local kids are addicted to meth from middle school thru college age and some later. Talk about Health Care costs! Who or how will society take care of all these future brain dead people? As usual the local, state, and federal government will react 50 years too late to make any difference. METH is a DEATH SENTENCE!

    I'm curios if she's an illegal alien with an anchor baby. Oh well Iguess it don't matter she has free health care now for the next ten years.Better than Obamas Health Care Plan.

    well Meth is really here. oh yeah Meth is one of the worse drugs out there. you get hooked and it's hard to break. so murder is one thing but dealing that much meth well you might as well say she is killing a bunch of people.

    I know, MrT, I can't believe she got 10 yrs prison plus being monitored for the next 50 years...that's a lot of tax payer money going to waste. Murderers do get off with less than that, here's an example: In SC, a guy punched another guy (hate crime) ended up killing him, and the suspect only got 51 WEEKS in prison. That's it. Sad.

    So a probation officer will be paid to monitor this woman until she is 82?(10 years in prison 50 years probation her 22 years of age=82) That is ridiculous.Murderers get off with less than that.And it wasn't even a violent crime.
