Austin woman sentenced in Mower County District Court on felony 3rd degree drug sale charge

An Austin woman who sold a total of 5.173 grams of methamphetamine to a confidential informant in Austin on two different occasions in February of 2020 has been sentenced to supervised probation, jail time, just over $1,000 in fines and fees and 80 hours in the sentence to service program in Mower County District Court.

30-year old Lori Beth Luna has been convicted and sentenced to five years of supervised probation and 43 days in jail for a felony charge of 3rd degree drugs, sale of a narcotic.  Judge Kevin Siefken granted Luna a stay of imposition in the case where the defendant pleads guilty to a felony-level offense.  If he or she successfully completes their probation, the conviction will be deemed a misdemeanor.  Luna was also given credit for 43 days already served in jail.

Luna first pleaded guilty to the charge in December of 2020, and an additional felony charge of 3rd degree drugs, sale of a narcotic in the case was dismissed with the guilty plea.
