Kansas City mom convicted of selling meth in children's' presence

LIBERTY — A 35-year-old Kansas City woman has been found guilty of selling methamphetamine to an undercover officer while her children were at home.

KSHB-TV reports a Clay County jury took only 40 minutes Tuesday to convict Lori Owsley of two counts of delivery of methamphetamines. Jurors recommended a 22-year prison sentence.

An undercover officer says he bought 2 grams of meth from Owsley at her home in June 2011 while several children were present, including her son and daughter. The detective also said that at one point during the drug deal, Owsley had four teenagers serve as lookouts.

Her next court appearance is scheduled for Feb. 14.
