BEAUMONT, TX (KTRE) - A federal judge sentenced a 26-year-old woman to three years probation Wednesday for her role in selling marijuana out of her home.

Porsche Denise Davis, 26, pleaded guilty to a charge of possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance. She could have been sentenced to up to five years in a federal prison.

Davis appeared in front of U.S. District Judge Ron Clark Wednesday. She pleaded guilty to the charge in November 2012.

As part of the conditions of Davis' probation, she will not be allowed to own a firearm, and she will be required to participate in a program for drug/alcohol testing and treatment, including a drug test within 15 days of her release from jail and at least two periodic tests after that. She will also be required to take part in a mental health treatment program and will be denied all federal benefits for five years.

A sentencing date has not been set for Davis's co-defendant, Marcel Cornelius Montgomery, 36, also of Lufkin. Montgomery also pleaded guilty to a marijuana charge last year.

Lufkin Police arrested them on May 20 after responding to a disturbance.

Officers said they discovered approximately two pounds of marijuana and two handguns inside the home.

The marijuana, a .25 caliber handgun, and a box of .380 caliber ammunition were found inside a gym bag, according to police.

A further search led police to a dirty clothes basket where they located a .380 caliber handgun.

Both Davis and Montgomery have prior felony convictions, making them ineligible to possess a firearm.
