Former Miss Navajo Nation released from prison

Former Miss Navajo Nation Radmilla Cody was recently released from federal prison after serving 21 months on a drug-related charge.

Cody pled guilty to knowing about the sale of illegal drugs and failing to report it to authorities. She had also lied to federal grand jury about her involvement in a drug ring allegedly run by her ex-boyfriend, whom she said was physically and verbally abusive.

Cody made an appearance at the 58th Annual Navajo Nation Fair on Saturday. According to news reports, she said being in prison made her feel free. She said she hoped her experience would teach younger Navajos to "Say no to drugs."

Cody's sentence includes one year of supervised release.
