(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – A St. Leon area woman who dealt drugs near a school will be spending the next couple decades in prison.

On Tuesday, Agnes E. Ande pleaded guilty to Dealing in a Schedule II Controlled Substance within 1,000 Feet of a School, a Class A felony punishable by 20 to 50 years.

Dearborn Superior Court I Judge Jon Cleary sentenced Ande to 28 years. Twenty-five years will be served in prison while the remaining three years were suspended to probation upon her release. She was given credit for 604 good time days served in jail since her arrest and prior to sentencing.

Ande, 46, had allegedly dealt 10 Oxycodone pills for $200 to an Indiana State Police confidential informant at Ande’s home on August 29, 2012. The residence on the 8500 block of State Road 46 is located within 1,000 feet of East Central High School, which investigators said was in session at the time of the drug deal.
