A federal judge sentenced a Penn Hills woman to five years and three months in prison for money laundering connected to a heroin ring.

Jody Taylor 52, pleaded guilty in November to financing trips to Newark, N.J., where drug couriers obtained several kilograms of heroin that were distributed in the Pittsburgh area. Taylor was operating a day care center out of her home while the ring operated from 2005-08, prosecutors say.

U.S. District Judge David Cercone also sentenced Taylor on Tuesday to three years of probation.
