PONTIAC, Mich. - A prostitute who once faced a life felony for supplying heroin to a customer who died while having sex with her has been sentenced to time served.

Natasha Vanwasshenova was sentenced Tuesday by Oakland County Circuit Court Judge Leo Bowman. He also placed the 28-year-old on probation for two years for delivery of a controlled substance.

She has been in jail for 14 months and pleaded guilty to the reduced charge. Oakland County prosecutors dropped a charge of drug delivery causing death. Her lawyer had questioned an autopsy blaming the death on heroin.

Authorities say a 38-year-old man hired her in November 2010 to come to his home in the Detroit suburb of Rochester.
