SULPHUR, OK - A Sulphur woman is sentenced to two years in prison after admitting her involvement in a nursing home drug ring.
42-year-old Carrie Ann Billings pleaded guilty last week to charges of obtaining a controlled dangerous substance and conspiracy. Billings will begin serving her sentence on Jan. 15.
