Two more inmates from the South Dakota women's prison have been sentenced on methamphetamine-related charges.

Attorney General Marty Jackley said Friday that 36-year-old Cassandra Bernard and 27-year-old Mary Sierra have each been sentenced to an additional year behind bars. Ten months of Sierra's sentence has been suspended.

Sierra has a sentence from Minnehaha County that she still must serve after her present one. Because of the stacking, the judge suspended part of the new sentence for ingesting meth.

The two were among other women's prison inmates charged in November 2015 for methamphetamine use.
