A Chester County woman faces at least two years in prison for supplying her teenage son with prescription narcotics to sell to his school friends.

The Daily Local News of West Chester reports 36-year-old Jessica Olivia Pavin apologized for her crimes during Wednesday's hearing, saying she was "overmedicated with painkillers."

Authorities say Pavin gave her 14-year-old son the drugs to sell to fellow students at Henderson High School then split the profits with him. She pleaded guilty to charges including possession with intent to deliver and corruption of a minor as part of a deal with prosecutors.

Pavin was arrested in January after a police detective witnessed a drug deal and confronted her son.
