CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) — A Dubuque woman tied to two drug overdose deaths has been imprisoned.

Federal court records say 25-year-old Brianna Martin was sentenced to 27 months in prison in January of 2019. She pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Cedar Rapids to distribution of heroin. She must serve three years of supervised release after she leaves prison and pay $12,500 in restitution.

The records say Martin helped one person who died buy heroin and sold prescribed methadone to other people, including one who died from an overdose.
