INDIANAPOLIS — A woman has been sentenced to serve one and a half years in the Indiana Department of Correction for possession of cocaine and intent to mislead public servants.

Indiana State Police originally arrested 47-year-old Angela Cook for identity deception, driving while suspended and possession of cocaine.
