A Wirtz woman was sentenced last week to 18 months in jail for illegally selling prescription drugs.

Amy S. Cochran, 31, pleaded guilty in February to two charges of distribution of oxycodone.

However, the judge delayed her active sentence on the conditions that Cochran be placed on intensive probation, pay $100 each month on her court costs, continue drug counseling, and pay $155 restitution to the Franklin County Sheriff's Office.

The judge will review Cochran's progress in December 2014, and if she does not comply with all the conditions, she will be sent to jail to serve the 18 months. 

The charges against Cochran stemmed from controlled buys of oxycodone, arranged by the Franklin County Sheriff's Office, in August 2012.

Franklin County Commonwealth's Attorney Tim Allen said the first controlled buy occurred on Aug. 21, 2012, when Cochran sold four pills for $75 at a convenience store in Rocky Mount.

The second buy occurred on Aug. 24, 2012, when she sold four pills for $80 at a convenience store in Burnt Chimney, Allen said.
