Johnson was sentenced to five years in prison but that sentence was probated; this means Johnson will not serve jail time in Oldham County.

Johnson is still facing the following charges in Jefferson County: trafficking in methamphetamine, convicted felon in possession of a handgun, trafficking in controlled substance, buy/possession of drug paraphernalia, carrying concealed deadly weapon and possession of marijuana.

Johnson was given a plea deal for a 2006 DUI crash that killed two teenage friends but she violated her probation with just six months remaining.
