A Sioux City teen sentenced to prison for selling K2 to another teen who later died from the drug has been re-sentenced to probation.

19-year-old Rose Mouw will now serve 4 years of probation. She was previously sentenced to ten years in prison for Involuntary Manslaughter and Delivery of a Controlled substance in connection to the death of 18-year-old West High senior Austin McCloud in April of 2015

Last month Mouw's attorney David Reinschmidt filed a motion to have her sentence reconsidered. Under Iowa law, a Judge has up to one year to reconsider a sentence. District Court Judge Patrick Tott agreed to allow the hearing. As part of the process, the Department of Corrections prepared a report detailing Mouw's behavior during the past three months of her incarceration. 

ABC9 had a reporter in the courtroom today. We'll have more coming up tonight at 5 and 6.
