LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

On Monday afternoon, a Lubbock woman pleaded guilty to federal charges following a multi-agency drug raid involving Fentanyl last year.

Jessica Holl, 28, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute Fentanyl and Furanyl Fentanyl. She faces up to 20 years in prison and up to a $1 million fine. 

Holl is one of three people facing federal charges after October's Fentanyl drug bust. 

Sidney Caleb Lanier, 36, and Jamie Robertson, 32, also accepted plea agreements with federal prosecutors. 

In October of last year, the Lubbock Police Department served warrants for multiple federal drug charges. 

According to the United State Attorney Northern District, Lanier was arrested at his home in the 5700 block of 154th Street. 

Holl and Robertson were arrested at an apartment complex at 4901 4th Street, near Slide Road. 

Experts say Fentanyl is 50 times more powerful than heroin and responsible for a sharp increase in opioid deaths across the country.
