A woman is sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for a federal drug trafficking case, according to U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom.

Abigail Torres Soto, 23, Salina, was sentenced Monday after pleading guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, three counts of distributing methamphetamine and one count of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.

Soto was indicted in April 2013 with co-defendants Jon Reed Woodbridge, 23, and Delaine Rae Romeo, 48. This indictment alleged that the defendants conspired to distribute methamphetamine in Saline County beginning in January 2013.

Romeo pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine in June 2013. She admitted agents from the drug task force based in Salina executed a search warrant at the Koyotee lounge in Salina and seized more than $6 thousand in cash, marijuana, methamphetamine and other drug paraphernalia on Feb. 7, 2013. Romeo also admitted to receiving methamphetamine from Soto to sell.
