NEW ORLEANS (AP) — An Oct. 13 sentencing date has been set for a Texas woman who pleaded guilty in New Orleans to conspiracy to distribute heroin.

U.S. Attorney Kenneth Polite's (poh-LEET's) office said in a news release that 51-year-old Martha Quinones (KEE'-noh-ness) of Houston pleaded guilty Thursday.

The possible sentence is 10 years to life. Prosecutors say she was part of a heroin trafficking organization that operated in New Orleans' Central City area.
