Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - A woman who was caught possessing a significant amount of methamphetamine while she was being processed into the Olmsted County jail has been sentenced to probation.

46-year-old Terra Sohns was recently given the sentence of seven years probation after previously pleading guilty to second and third-degree drug charges. She was also given a stayed 68-month prison term that she could be ordered to serve if she fails to stay out of trouble.

Sohns was arrested last July after a Rochester police officer patrolling Essex Park came upon a vehicle inside the park after closing time. The officer then discovered the driver was Sohns, who was arrested because of her history of failing to pay fines and missing court appearances.

The criminal complaint says the staff at the Olmsted County jail was searching her as part of the intake process when it was discovered that she had 42 grams of methamphetamine hidden in a body cavity.
