A 38-year-old woman who hosted parties for teens — supplying them drugs and alcohol — at her Westwood house has been sentenced to more than two years in prison.

Sarah Maria Gonzalez was sentenced Wednesday in Johnson County District Court where she pleaded guilty in May to endangering the welfare of a child and distribution of marijuana and hallucinogenic mushrooms.

Assistant District Attorney Sarah Hill argued for prison time while defense attorney Craig Divine requested probation.

District Judge Brenda Cameron sentenced Gonzalez to two years and five months in prison. Gonzalez, who had been free on bond, was taken into custody Wednesday.

The investigation of Gonzalez began after police received numerous complaints from parents, leading police to execute a search warrant on her house.
