A 38-year-old Scottsbluff woman who was caught with more than 10 grams of methamphetamine during a traffic stop has been sentenced to 5 to 7 years in prison.
Desirae Rein was arrested in January, 2016 after getting pulled over for having for expired plates. During the traffic stop, Rein pulled a handgun from the waistband of the male passenger as officers attempted to remove him from the vehicle.
Once the occupants were secured, they found baggies with methamphetamine in it, as well as drug paraphernalia.
Rein was convicted on an amended charge of Possession of a Firearm with a Felony 1D violation, as well as charges of obstruction and carrying a concealed weapon.
On Monday, Rein was sentenced to 5 to 6 years on the meth/ firearm charge, one year in prison on the obstruction charge, and one year in prison on the concealed weapon charge. The obstruction charge will run consecutively, bringing her prison sentence up to 5 to 7 years; Rein will not be eligible for parole until at least 2022.
