Woman Gets Jail Time in Drug & Money Laundering Case

In addition to her prison term, 31-year-old Sara Jarrett will serve five years of supervised release following her release from prison. Since this is a federal sentence, she will not be eligible for early release.

According to the U.S. Attorney's Office, Jarrett was one of 11 people indicted with Shannon Williams in December 2009. Jarrett was one of Williams’ drivers who helped him run his marijuana business, while he was incarcerated in the Douglas County jail.

From June of 2008 through January of 2009, on at least 19 occasions, Jarrett drove money from Omaha and dropped it off to other drivers in Denver or drove it herself to Mr. Williams in Arizona. The money was proceeds from marijuana trafficking. It is believed throughout the conspiracy Jarrett transported between $1,900,000 and $3,253,161.

This case was the culmination of a 15 month investigation that involved the I.R.S., F.B.I., Omaha Police Department, Bellevue Police Department, D.E.A. and several law enforcement agencies in Arizona.

Williams and co-defendant, Deshawn Hernandez, are scheduled to be sentenced on July 28th.
