LOGAN – A Logan woman was sentenced Tuesday in 1st District Court to between one and 15 years in state prison for dealing methamphetamines.

Guadalupe Ruiz will spend one year of her sentence in the Cache County jail, after which she will have a review. She will then be placed on a 36-month parole which includes no alcohol, no drugs, and successful completion of drug counseling. She must also complete her GED in six months. Her prison sentence is suspended upon successful completion of parole.

Ruiz had been completing up to ten drug deals every weekend at $30 per deal. Ruiz said she needed extra money to support her family, and admitted that dealing drugs was the wrong way to do it.

“It was a bump in the road for me,” Ruiz said.

But Judge Thomas Willmore did not see it her way, and ordered her to complete moral recognition therapy as a term of her parole. Violation of her parole will lead to her return to jail for up to 15 years.
