Levi Johnston's mother, Sherry, sentenced to prison for selling OxyContin

Sherry Johnston was sentenced today to three years in prison for dealing OxyContin. Johnston, 43, is the mother of Levi Johnston, who is the father of Gov. Sarah Palin's grandchild, Tripp.

Johnston, who lives in Wasilla, made a deal with prosecutors in August to plead to a single felony count in exchange for dropping the other five felony drug dealing charges against her. The deal called for her to be sentenced to three years of prison time plus three years of probation, which is what the judge gave her.

Johnston will serve her sentence at Alaska's only female prison, Hiland Mountain Correctional Center in Eagle River. She has been at Hiland since she pleaded guilty.
