MISSOULA — A Missoula woman who admitted to distributing meth on behalf of another person has been sentenced to one year and one day in prison followed by three years of supervised release, U.S. Attorney Kurt Alme said.

Aurora Elizabeth Quinn, a 37-year-old, pleaded guilty in December to distribution of meth.

In court documents filed in the case, the prosecution said that Quinn, acting on behalf of another person, referred to as John Doe, distributed about 12 grams of meth to a confidential source in May 2019.

Before the deal, the confidential source had talked to John Doe, who indicated that Quinn would have the drugs. The source called Quinn, the two arranged to meet and the source paid Quinn $500 for a package of meth.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Tara Elliott prosecuted the case, which was investigated by the FBI and the Montana Regional Violent Crime Task Force.
