    A mother who pleaded guilty to supplying minors with marijuana and prescription drugs with the help of her daughter, a Cathedral Catholic student, was sentenced to more than a decade in prison.

    Kimberly Quach and her boyfriend pleaded guilty to charges of selling illegal drugs to minors in May. On Friday Quach was handed down the harshest penalty possible per her plea agreement -- 11 years and 8 months in prison.

    The judge called her conduct "sickening to the court," and said she was teaching children how to become drug dealers.

    Quach pleaded guilty to furnishing suboxone to a minor, furnishing Xanax to a minor, employing a minor to sell marijuana to a minor over 14, and furnishing marijuana to a minor over 14.

    She admitted to giving the drugs to her daughter to sell to other minors, including students at Cathedral Catholic. Prosecutors said at least two minors who purchased drugs facilitated by Quach had to go to rehab. 

    "I have no words to express the remorse that I have for my actions," a tearful Quach said, apologizing to the judge and her 10 and 17-year-old daughters.

    Quach asked the judge for the minimum sentence of eight years, saying she had already missed important moments in the lives of her children, like her oldest daughter's high school graduation.

    Prosecutors said Quach was growing marijuana inside her home in the summer of 2016 and began selling it with her daughter's help.

    Quach's boyfriend, William John Sipperley pleaded guilty to employment of a minor to sell marijuana and furnishing marijuana to a minor over 14. He was sentenced to six years and four months in prison.

    Investigators were able to uncover text messages between Sipperley and Quach, where Quach tells Sipperley they needed to pay her daughter a percentage. He told Quach he "figured she was just helping out to be able to get all of the things she gets."
