The grandmother of Tripp Johnston, Bristol Palin's infant and Sarah Palin's grandson, is headed to jail for three years plus three years of probation:

Johnston made a deal with prosecutors to plead to a single felony count in exchange for dropping five other felony drug dealing charges against her. The deal called for the 42-year-old Wasilla woman to be sentenced to three years of prison time plus three years of probation, which is what the judge gave her.

Johnston received less time than the normal five to eight years for a second-degree felony drug charge because the amount she was dealing was so small.

What impact this could have on the Palin-Johnston feud requires inside knowledge of those families that the Dish simply doesn't have. But I imagine it must be painful for Levi. I wonder if Palin will comment.
