Ex-wife of reputed drug baron gets 5 years

The ex-wife of a reputed drug kingpin has been sentenced to five years in a Dominican prison after admitting that she laundered drug money for her former husband's network.
Leavy Nin Batista acknowledged her guilt in a plea deal with prosecutors in the Dominican Republic earlier this month.
At Monday's sentencing, Judge Claribel Nivar said Batista will be eligible for release after two and a half years if she completes classes to learn a profession and follows prison rules.
Batista's ex-husband is Jose Figueroa Agosto. He was captured last year in Puerto Rico after spending a decade on the run while allegedly shipping Colombian cocaine to the U.S. mainland. He is now jailed in the Dominican Republic.
