A Madison woman who was arrested on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine was sentenced to 10 years of probation Tuesday.
Robin B. Joslin, 39, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to manufacture meth, a Class B felony. Her sentence will be transferred to community corrections and she will serve the 10 years on home detention.
Police received information that Joslin and two other people were manufacturing meth in the 2500 block of Franks Drive in February 2011. When they entered the home, police discovered supplies related to the manufacturing process around the house.
Joslin has no criminal history. During Tuesday's hearing, Joslin said she slipped into a deep depression after her husband died. She said she quit her job and started selling boxes of pseudoephedrine to provide income.
Joslin said she is off drugs now and is going to a doctor for depression medicine. She is surrounding herself with closer friends who are providing her a good support system.
"I know I'm not the person I was, and I'll do whatever I can to make sure this never happens again," she said.
