A 29-year-old Dodge City woman has been sentenced to a year in prison after pleading guilty to lying during a grand jury investigation.

The U.S. attorney's office for Kansas says Petra Garcia-Martinez pleaded guilty earlier to perjury and making a false statement to federal investigators.

U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said Friday in a release that Garcia-Martinez admitted that she testified falsely before the grand jury in Wichita in 2011 when she was questioned about her knowledge of her brother, Pedro Garcia's, affiliation with the Nortenos gang in Dodge City.

Grissom says she testified falsely that she wasn't aware that her brother was in a gang and was affiliated with the Nortenos.
