Monday, November 17, 2008

A Cape Girardeau woman was sentenced to six years on drug trafficking convictions in federal court Monday and a Cape Girardeau man pleaded guilty to distributing drugs, according to news releases from U.S. Attorney Catherine Hanaway's office.

Misty Raye Edmonds, 31, was previously convicted on three felony counts of distributing five grams or more of cocaine base.

Edmonds' convictions stem from events in May and June this year, when Edmonds sold varying amounts of the drug to informants at her Cape Girardeau County home.

Marquies Cymone Boyd, 24, pleaded guilty to four felony counts of distribution of cocaine base. With the plea Boyd admitted to selling crack cocaine to an information four times in May and June. His sentencing is set for Feb. 17.
