NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (AP) – A North Platte woman has been sentenced to one to three years in prison for giving her daughter a prescription drug that was passed to another teen. The North Platte Telegraph reports that 36-year-old Amie Jackson was sentenced Tuesday. Jackson made a deal with prosecutors and pleaded guilty in August to a reduced charge of attempting to commit a class three felony. Prosecutors say Jackson gave her teen daughter the anti-anxiety medication Xanax, and her daughter gave the pills to a friend. Jackson was arrested in June. Jackson received credit for the 71 days she has already spent in jail.
