Federal authorities on Thursday announced sentencing for a Tahlequah woman accused of having a hand in a racketeering enterprise.

Amanda Dawn Cookson, 27, was sentenced to 60 months in prison, to be followed by three years of supervised release, for interstate travel or transportation in aid of racketeering enterprises.

Cookson was charged after an investigation by the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics that was coordinated by the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force for the Eastern District of Oklahoma.

She allegedly traveled to Fort Smith to purchase oxycodone from a Walgreens pharmacy with a false prescription.

Cookson will remain in custody of the U.S. Marshal Service pending transportation to a designated federal facility. She will not be eligible for parole.
