Thu., June 10, 2010, midnight

Four associates of an ex-Coeur d’Alene meth dealer serving 13 years in federal prison were sentenced to their own prison terms this week.

Brenda Barron, 46, was sentenced to 151 months on May 10.

Now her daughter, 25-year-old Amber Larsen, is set to join her in the federal system, along with Coeur d’Alene residents Harold R. “Hank” Dillon, 41; Daniel Napier, 46, and Paige M. Rathburn, 24.

The four were sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court in Coeur d’Alene after pleading guilty earlier this year to conspiracy to possess methamphetamine with intent to distribute.

Dillon, Napier and Rathburn were sentenced to 70 months in prison followed by five years probation.

Larsen received 32 months in prison, five years probation and 100 hours of community service.
