LACONIA — A New Hampton woman who pleaded guilty to drug possession was told to complete her high school education as part of her sentence.

Beverly Avery, 37, of Hatch Corner Road, New Hampton, pleaded guilty in Belknap Superior Court Tuesday to possession of methamphetamine.

Judge James D. O’Neill III sentenced Avery to 12 months in the House of Correction with all the time suspended on condition of two years' good behavior. A $434 fine was also suspended on the same condition.

O’Neill ordered Avery to be on probation for one year. As a condition of her probation, the judge told Avery to get her General Education Diploma — or GED — or high school equivalency diploma.
