A Laurel woman admitted to drug charges during a hearing in U.S. District Court in Billings on Wednesday.

Krista Little Head, 28, who has a felony record, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to possess methamphetamine for distribution in late 2011.

Prosecutor Jessica Fehr said Little Head twice set up deals in which a confidential informant bought an ounce of meth for $2,300 from Ismael Zamora. Zamora was later sentenced to more than 10 years in federal prison on drug charges.

Little Head faces a minimum mandatory five years to 40 years in prison and a possible $5 million fine.

Senior U.S. District Judge Richard Cebull set sentencing for June 19. Little Head remains in custody.

Little Head previously was convicted in federal court in 2008 of false statements and of assault with a dangerous weapon. She admitted to falsely accusing three men of raping her and to stabbing her boyfriend in the chest with a knife during an argument.

A judge sentenced her to 43 months in each case with the sentences to be served concurrently. Little Head then was revoked twice for violating conditions of supervised release.
