A Springfield woman pleads guilty Thursday for her role in a million-dollar mail fraud conspiracy.

Western District U.S. Attorney Tammy Dickinson reports 28 year old Victoria Butchee, also known as Victoria Wohlin, waived her right to a grand jury and pleaded guilty to mail fraud conspiracy related to the distribution of at least 188 kilograms of synthetic marijuana, commonly known as K2.

In exchange for the guilty plea, another complaint filed against Butchee was dismissed.

The conspiracy is alleged to have taken place from 2011 to June of this year.

Along with $1.3 million dollars in restitution, Butchee could face up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
