Saenz gets 15 month for plea in meth trial

Debbie Saenz was sentenced to 455 days in a state jail facility after she pleaded guilty to possession of a controlled substance Tuesday.

The 53-year-old Levelland woman pleaded guilty to the state jail felony after a jury had been seated in the 286th Judicial District Court.

A jury deliberated 30 minutes before returning their sentence.

Saenz could have been sentenced to a maximum of two years in custody and fined $10,000.

Police Officer Andrew Mosteller testified Tuesday that he stopped Saenzís car the night of June 15, 2013 for a defective brake light.

Mosteller said Saenz trembled when she gave him her driverís license. He received permission to search her purse  and found a glass pipe that contained a trace amount of methamphetamine. It field tested positive for meth.
