    A Vermont woman has been sentenced to serve over two years in federal prison after pleading guilty to conspiring to distribute heroin.

    Maria Hunton of South Burlington had faced a longer term, but the judge considered her lack of a criminal record in imposing the sentence.

    Court records said the 23-year-old Hunton and her boyfriend sold large amounts of controlled substances from his home in South Burlington. The boyfriend, Ryan Orvis, has pleaded guilty to conspiring to distribute cocaine.

    She was sentenced Tuesday.
