NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

A Nacogdoches woman pleaded guilty Thursday to dealing Meth near drug free school zones of elementary schools.

Glenda Hanna was sentenced to 15 years in prison.  Investigators said Hanna was using a home jewelry business as a front for selling Meth.  The woman has a record of bail jumping and failure to appear and that past history played a factor in Thursday's plea agreement, according to prosecutors. 

"The bottom line is because of her prior conviction the range of punishment in this case, if we had gone to a jury, would be 15-99 years or life," said Stephanie Stephens, special prosecutor.

"Just a situation you try to do the best you can and get something that is agreeable to everyone. Stephanie ultimately offered what was a minimal plea bargain on the case," said Noel Cooper, defense attorney.

Hanna's husband, Marc, is currently serving a 5 year probated sentence for possession of a controlled substance.  One other note, Glenda Hanna is receiving medical attention following the discovery of a non-cancerous tumor in her breast.
