U.S. Attorney Duane Evans announced Wednesday that Dominique Wise, 32, of Franklinton, was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty to a federal drug crime.

Evans said that Wise pleaded guilty to misprision of a felony, stemming from a Sept. 27, 2015, traffic stop in Kenner, during which police seized one-half kilogram of powder cocaine from the floorboard of her car.

U.S. District Judge Martin L.C. Feldman sentenced Wise to three years of probation.

Derrick Wilson, 34, of Franklinton, had pleaded guilty on July 12 to conspiring to distribute a quantity of cocaine hydrochloride in the same incident.

Wilson faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison, a fine of up to $1,000,000 and at least three years of supervised release when sentenced.
