A Danville woman has been sentenced to two years in prison for running an illegal cross-country marijuana distribution ring.
Federal prosecutors in Syracuse, New York said 31-year-old Simona Borissova of Danville was also sentenced recently to three years of supervised release and ordered to forfeit nearly $275,000 in a money judgment.
Borissova pleaded guilty in February to marijuana distribution and money laundering charges.
Prosecutors maintained that while living in Nevada from 2011 to August 2015 Borissova had marijuana driven from her parents’ pot farm to various stash houses in Las Vegas. From there, it was alleged, others involved in the operation would ship the marijuana to Utica, New York, and other cities around the country.
The buyers deposited money in bank accounts held by Borissova, who would use the funds to purchase more pot and pay expenses, prosecutors said.
