June 9, 2018

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Prosecutors say a woman charged in a conspiracy to distribute meth throughout the New Orleans area has pleaded guilty.

U.S. Attorney Duane Evans tells NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune 37-year-old Dawn Conravey pleaded guilty Wednesday to participating in the 2016 trafficking conspiracy. Prosecutors say the New Orleans resident acted as a broker for a major meth distributor who obtained the drugs by mail and other sources.

Evans says in a statement that Conravey could be sentenced to a mandatory minimum of five years in prison and a maximum of 40 years. She pleaded guilty to conspiring to distribute and possess with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of a mixture of methamphetamine.

U.S. District Judge Ivan L.R. Lemelle set her sentencing for Sept. 12. It is unclear if she has a lawyer.
