NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - A Nacogdoches woman accepted a 12-year prison sentence Friday in connection to a meth lab bust in April.

Nina Michele Morales, 37, accepted the sentence on a possession of a controlled substance charge. She also accepted a two-year state jail sentence for child endangerment.

Nacogdoches County deputies arrested Morales in April after learning that she and her 16-month-old child were living at a home on Press Road where a meth lab had been running. They arrested her after learning she was connected to a meth distribution operation.

The child endangerment charge was tacked on after her child tested positive to meth.
