Fallen dot-com millionaire guilty of selling drugs, guns

It has been a dramatic fall for dot-com millionaire Jennifer Sultan.

Thirteen years ago, the New York City woman and her partners sold an Internet business for $70 million.

Now, she is set to receive a four-year prison sentence after pleading guilty Friday to dealing prescription painkillers and conspiring to sell an illegal gun.

Sultan's lawyer says she became addicted to painkillers in the years after her Internet windfall.

Even while living in splendor, she fell in with a group of drug dealers. Her fortune evaporated.

She was arrested last July and accused of trying to sell a handgun for $850. Then she was caught selling prescription drugs on Craigslist.

Sultan's lawyer says she is now sober, and hopes to become a holistic healer when released from jail.
