A Eugene woman who says she began selling hallucinogenic mushrooms after getting involved in the "Deadhead" community has been sentenced to two years in prison for her role in a $500,000 interstate drug and money laundering ring.
The Register-Guard reports 40-year-old Suzan Dione, also known as Susan Dianne Gillett, told U.S. District Judge Michael Hogan that she took full responsibility for her actions. She has no previous criminal history.
She acknowledged in court documents that she and three people transported ecstacy, marijuana and hallucinogenic mushrooms for sale in 11 states. Dione's attorney says she began selling mushrooms in 2000 and got involved in money laundering between July 2007 and November 2008.
Police were tipped off to the ring by Eugene bank employees.
