LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - A federal jury in Las Cruces has convicted an Artesia woman of charges of methamphetamine trafficking.
The U.S. Attorney's Office in Albuquerque says 36-year-old Genevieve Hernandez was convicted Tuesday after a two-day trial.
Prosecutors say Hernandez faces at least 10 years in prison because she previously had been convicted of a narcotics trafficking crime.
A co-defendant in the case, 21-year-old Mickah Chavez of Artesia, pleaded guilty in March and has been sentenced to two years in prison.
According to the U.S. Attorney's Office, jurors heard testimony that Hernandez provided methamphetamine to Chavez and that Chavez then sold the methamphetamine to an undercover agent posing as a drug dealer.
