An attorney from Berryville, Arkansas, who was caught selling methamphetamine out of her law office in October of 2009 has lost her license to practice law and has been sentenced to ten years in prison.
Baker, who is now pregnant, will spend the next four years (six years of her sentence was suspended) at the Department of Community Corrections. She will then be placed on 14 years of supervised probation. The judge hearing Baker's case told her that if she failed to complete the terms of her sentence she will be incarcerated for 14 years.
"It just shows you what drugs can do to you no matter what your career is," said Sheriff Bob Grudek. "Professional people and everyday people are affected......drugs don't discriminate."
