NEWMARKET, England — An Air Force officer has been sentenced to three months’ confinement and dismissal from the service at the close of her court-martial at RAF Lakenheath on Wednesday.

First Lt. Stephanie Frick pleaded guilty to charges of using and distributing ecstasy and mushrooms containing psilocybin, a hallucinogenic substance, a base spokesman wrote in an email.

Her charge sheet states the crimes occurred between September 2011 and April 2013 at or near Rosamond and San Bernardino, Calif.

In January it was reported that an investigation into two officers allegedly involved with illegal drugs at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif., had expanded to 10 officers stationed at various bases, including Lakenheath.
