Los Angeles, Nov 1 (THAINDIAN NEWS) It is often said that old habits die-hard and that might be exactly the case in the case of Ola Mae Agee. At the very advanced age of 87 years Ola has been jailed for a-year-and-a-half for dealing in crack cocaine. Ola was arrested after an undercover cop managed to get the octogenarian to sell him a crack.

The police stint was captured on CCTV, which was shown to the court during the trial. The jury did not waste any time at all in coming out with their verdict. The deliberations of the jury took less than 15 minutes and a verdict of guilty was returned for selling illegal drugs.

The old woman has previously falling foul of the law several times. She was initially arrested in 1996 when she was 78 years old for possessing drugs with the intent to sell. She was given two years probation. She again found herself at the wrong side of the law in February 1999 for similar offense and again she was treated with kid gloves, probably due to her advanced age.

In the current case, she could have served up to 15 years for the offense but it seems her age came to her aid again.
