Woman in missing girl's case gets 25 years on drug charges

Misty Croslin was also ordered to pay a $500,000 fine.

Misty Croslin, the last person known to see a 5-year-old Florida girl before she was reported missing in February 2009, was sentenced Friday to 25 years in prison on unrelated drug charges.

Croslin and her former husband, Ronald Cummings, were both arrested in January along with three others after selling about $3,900 worth of drugs to undercover officers, authorities said.

Cummings was sentenced in September to 15 years in prison and was fined $250,000 for selling prescription drugs.

Cummings is the father of Haleigh Cummings, who vanished after she was tucked into bed about 8 p.m. February 8, 2009, Croslin told police.

The Croslin and Ronald Cummings divorced after Haleigh's disappearance.

    You can commit murder and only get 10-15 years. 25 years for selling rx is excessive. Murder is worse. However, she does as the others involved need to be put away for life for whatever happened to Haleigh. You know they all had a hand in it. How stupid to do criminal activity knowing the authorities are going to be watching your every move because of suspisions about this missing girl.
