Columbus Woman to be Sentenced on Attempted Delivery of Meth Conviction Friday

COLUMBUS, Neb. – A Columbus woman may be looking at prison time after being convicted of attempted delivery of meth earlier this summer.

39-year-old Kiley Bender will be sentenced on Friday after being convicted on the felony attempted delivery charge in July.

According to court documents, the Columbus Police Department was told that Columbus man Shane Luther was selling meth in the area. The documents say that Luther was called by a police informant for meth, but instead, Kiley Bender answered and told the informant she could deliver the meth.

The records say the informant and Bender then met at a Columbus business, where Bender drove the informant to a residence and gave the informant a baggie of 1.6 grams of meth.

Bender was originally charged with delivery of meth, but the charge was amended to attempted delivery of meth in a plea deal.

Luther was later convicted of delivering meth and sentenced to 2-4 years in prison.

Bender faces up to 20 years in prison with no minimum sentence.
