A La Salle woman is going to prison for setting up her former husband on a false drug charge.

Jaime L. Rowlee, 35, was sentenced Wednesday to 18 months in prison and to pay $10,500 restitution to the victim. She pleaded guilty June 21 to felony disorderly conduct and had been out of custody on $2,500 cash bond until sentencing. Rowlee could be paroled in about nine months.

Prosecutor Jeremiah Adams asked Chief Judge H. Chris Ryan Jr. for a three-year prison term and the $10,500 restitution. Rowlee's attorney, Douglas Olivero, asked for probation and no restitution.

Rowlee called the La Salle County Sheriff's Office on July 9, 2011, lying that her former husband — Ottawa native Greg Rowlee — had made a drug deal near Norway and had concealed what appeared to be drugs inside a wheel well of his SUV. Greg Rowlee ended up being charged, but the charge was dropped three months later. The sheriff's office then investigated Jaime Rowlee, and she confessed.

Jaime Rowlee has been in prison before for forgery.
