OXFORD — A woman will serve as many as 10 years in prison following a conviction of trafficking in heroin.

Michael Gaberiona Frye pleaded guilty to the charge last month in Granville County Superior Court, according to a press release from District Attorney Mike Waters office.

Frye was accused of selling heroin in Wake, Vance and Granville counties, the release said.

She was arrested by the State Bureau of Investigation and the Oxford Police Department after she flew to Raleigh from California, prosecutors said. At the time, she had about an ounce of heroin in a bag with her.

Judge John M. Dunlow sentenced Frye to between seven years and six months to 10 years in state prisons. She was also ordered to pay a fine of $100,000.

The case was prosecuted by assistant district attorneys Allison S. Capps, Michael W. Putney Jr. and Brent W. Groce.
