Woman Sentenced On Meth Charges

A Sioux Falls woman is sentenced to six years in prison for felony possession of methamphetamine.   However under new sentencing guidelines, Rhiannon White may only spend as few as 13 months behind bars.  Deputy Minnehaha County States Attorney Tom Hensley told Judge Brad Zell White made conscious choices in the days surrounding a house fire that took the lives of her three children…

White’s lawyer Amber Eggert says her client is to turn her life around with some help…

White herself says she’s made a number of changes since she’s been in jail the last 144 days…

Zell sentenced White to six years in the state Women’s prison and gave credit for 144 days spent in the Minnehaha County Jail and said the sentence was about justice and rehabilitation…

Since it is White’s first felony drug conviction, she is eligible for parole after serving 25-percent of the sentence or 18 months. Because of the roughly five-months of time served credit, White could be paroled in 13 months.
