A jury found the Pensacola woman guilty of one count of selling cocaine; she could have been sentenced to up to 15 years in prison, reports the Pensacola News Journal.

According to CBS affiliate WLTX, Agee was arrested in May by Escambia County officers and taken to jail but was released on her own recognizance because of her age.

This was not the first time the 87-year-old had been arrested on drug-related charges.

Agee pleaded no contest in December 1996 to possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell, manufacture or deliver.

She served a two-year probation, which ended in July of 1998 when she was 75 years old. Agee was again arrested in February of 1999 for possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, but the charges against her were later dropped.
