Gilg announced that on April 4, Megan Elizabeth Miller, 19, formerly of Denver, Colorado, was sentenced to 57 months in prison for conspiracy to distribute 28 grams or more of cocaine base, also known as crack cocaine, and a mixture or substance containing powder cocaine.
Information provided to law enforcement indicated that between April 26, 2011, and June 14, 2011, Miller was involved in the distribution of crack cocaine and powder cocaine in North Platte.
