SEOUL — A 2nd Infantry Division soldier was sentenced to 12 months in prison and a bad conduct discharge after she was convicted of various drug-related charges, officials said Friday.

Spc. Jacqueline Krieger of the 102nd Military Intelligence Battalion also was reduced to private, or E-1, a 2nd Infantry Division spokesman said.

At a general court martial Oct. 10, Krieger was found guilty of wrongfully exporting a controlled substance, introduction of a controlled substance on a military installation, wrongfully using and distributing a controlled substance and wrongfully using a different controlled substance, according to Maj. Curtis Roberts, deputy public affairs officer.

While returning from leave in California, Krieger exported a gram of methamphetamines and less than gram of cocaine to South Korea, Roberts said.

Krieger brought the drugs to Camp Essayons, where she used and shared the drugs with seven other soldiers. Krieger also purchased and used Percocet that she obtained from another soldier, according to court records.

It was unclear Friday what, if anything, happened with the seven other soldiers who used the drugs smuggled by Krieger.
