LAYTON -- A Layton dentist will spend one year in jail for slipping a friend a psychotropic drug and lying about what it was.

According to prosecutors, in March of 2008, Sherman Dale Hibbert,47, was at dinner with a woman when she said she wasn't feeling well. He gave her what he claimed was cold medicine. She later woke up in his house, unsure how she got there.

A blood test showed ecstasy in her system.

DEA agents searched his home and found about 50 ecstasy pills.

In February Hibbert pleaded guilty to attempted distribution and possession of a controlled substance.

In addition to his jail term, he will also serve three years probation.
