Sharon Kirven, 37, of Clovis, was sentenced Monday to eight years in prison on drug charges.

Kirven was convicted June 26 by a district court jury of trafficking controlled substances and solicitation to tamper with evidence, according to a press release from District Attorney Andrea Reeb.

The release said Kirven was arrested May 28 at Curry County jail after telling a family member in a recorded telephone conversation where she had hidden cocaine. Police located 4.4 ounces of cocaine in a vehicle at the location, according to the release.

Kirven’s attorney, District Public Defender Chandler Blair, declined comment.
