An East Troy woman was sentenced to two years in prison and four years extended supervision for selling cocaine at the Vegas Club in the Town of Darien.

Three additional counts of manufacturing or delivering cocaine against her were dismissed as were charges of possession with intent to deliver cocaine, two counts of possession of marijuana, possession of cocaine and possession of amphetamine, LSD or psilocin.

She was sentenced Dec. 14 to two years in prison and four years extended supervision on each of the three counts to which she pleaded guilty. The sentences are to run concurrently, according to online court records.

Her husband, Armando Esquivel, 35, is scheduled to be sentenced Jan. 18. He pleaded guilty Nov. 21 to three counts of manufacturing or delivering cocaine. Four additional counts of manufacturing or delivering cocaine against him were dismissed as was a charge of possession with intent to deliver cocaine.

Two other women – Alicia M. Limones, 26, and Rosa E. Ibarra Camberos, 25, of Janesville – are each charged with one count of delivering cocaine.

A status conference is scheduled for Feb. 7 for Limones, and Camberos is scheduled for a plea and sentencing hearing Jan. 28.

On another occasion in December 2017, police conducted a controlled buy of .67 grams of cocaine from Ibarra Camberos at the Vegas Club, according to the complaint.
