A Grand Island woman ends up in prison for over four years after selling meth to an informant

LINCOLN, Neb. (Nebraska) — A Grand Island woman will spend more than four years behind bars after selling meth to an informant, the U.S. attorney’s office said Friday.

Kendra Baker, 37, was sentenced to 4 1/2 years in prison for distributing 50 grams or more of meth-containing concoction and 5 grams or more of real methamphetamine.

In 2021, according to the attorney’s office, investigators used a “confidential informant” to set up a drug deal with Baker.

From March to April, the tipster bought meth four times from Baker in Grand Island and Hastings.

In total, the whistleblower purchased 125 grams of meth, the prosecutor’s office said.

Following his prison sentence, Baker will serve a three-year period of supervised release. There is no parole in the federal system.
