FAIRBANKS -- A 21-year-old Fairbanks woman will spend a year and a day in federal prison for her part in a money laundering conspiracy from the illegal sale of prescription painkillers.
Synda L. Collins was sentenced this week in U.S. District Court in Anchorage.
Prosecutors said she helped launder about $14,000. In total, officials say, the ring wound up laundering about $140,000 from the illegal sale of Oxycotin. The drugs were moved from Las Vegas to Fairbanks in late 2008 to early 2009.
Four others also received jail terms for their part in the conspiracy.
