CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — A Wyoming woman who pleaded guilty to her role in a drug-related crime spree has been sentenced to 20 years in federal prison.
KTWO-AM reports U.S. District Judge Scott Skavdahl sentenced Santana Keener on Thursday to 20 years in prison for conspiracy to distribute drugs, aiding and abetting a carjacking and a firearms charge.
Keener was arrested in June by officers investigating drug trafficking. Keener was driving when officers initiated a pursuit.
Her co-defendant, Christopher Eads, shot at pursuing officers, assaulted a woman, stole her car, assaulted a Glenrock police officer and stole his car, abandoned it and stole another car, leading officers on a pursuit that ended in a standoff in Casper.
