A Scottsbluff woman has been sentenced to five to eight years in prison for two conviction of delivering methamphetamine.

52 year old Tracy Little Dog was convicted of selling relatively large amounts of meth to confidential informants with the WING Drug Task Force in August and December of last year.

County Attorney Dave Eubanks asked for the prison sentence because the deliveries involved ” an eight ball and well over 17 grams of methamphetamine”, significant amounts that showed she was dealing the drug. Eubanks said a prison sentence was needed to “get the message to other drug dealers.”

District Judge Leo Dobrovolny also noted the sales were”fairly large” and Little Dog’s long period of involvement with drugs showed she was “relatively powerless to change”. Dobrovolny said any treatment of the defendant would best be served in corrections rather than a probation setting.

Little Dog’s attorney Len Tabor stressed little Dog’s difficult life, including three marriages involving domestic abuse and mental health issues he claimed could be addressed as part of a probation sentence.
