Prison, Prolonged Probation For Beatrice Woman

BEATRICE – A judge has sentenced a 26-year-old woman to Nebraska prison for weapon and drug charges, along with a lengthy term of post-release supervision.

Morgan Kriz was sentenced in Gage County District Court, Thursday, to one year in prison for being a felon in possession of a deadly weapon, and consecutive nine-month prison terms for possession of cocaine and possession of methamphetamine.  She’s also facing charges in Lancaster County.

Judge Julie Smith ordered two years of post-release supervision on the weapon conviction, and nine-months supervision after serving time on each of the drug violations.
