Santa Rosa woman given jail time for role in heroin ring

A Santa Rosa heroin dealer who along with her husband was part of a Sonoma County drug distribution ring has been sentenced to six years in county jail.

Sunshine Rayna Anderson, 39, was sentenced Wednesday for her role in the ring involving her husband, William “Billy” Oliver Anderson, 45, and another man, Matthew Dean Domingos, 32, also of Santa Rosa, prosecutors said.

She admitted charges in four separate cases, including possession of heroin for sale and possession of more than 14 grams, prosecutors said. Also, she was convicted of trying to sneak heroin into the jail, prosecutors said.

Since November, Anderson had been arrested multiple times on drugs charges, was released on bail and failed to appear at court dates, prosecutors said.

At one point, police found 44 grams of heroin in the couple’s hotel room, packaged for sale, prosecutors said.

She was a fugitive until her May 4 arrest at a Rohnert Park Walmart, prosecutors said. An off-duty sheriff’s deputy recognized her car in the parking lot from warrant information and waited for her to leave the store to detain her, prosecutors said.

Her husband was previously sentenced to four years and eight months in jail. Domingos, accused of running a Santa Rosa “stash house” for the Andersons and possessing a sawed-off shotgun, also was sentenced to jail, prosecutors said.
