CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - A Charlottesville woman faces up to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to selling bath salts at a store she formerly owned.

 

Lois Lee McDaniel also faces a fine of up to $1 million.

 

She pleaded guilty Thursday in U.S. District Court to conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute and to distribute bath salts.

 

McDaniel formerly owned the C-Ville Video Store. She admitted in court that she sold more than 200 grams of bath salts between April and August last year from behind the counter at the store.

 

U.S. Attorney Timothy J. Heaphy says abuse of the highly addictive substances is rising in Central Virginia, particularly among young people.
