A convicted drug dealer on probation has been jailed, accused of violating her probation by possessing heroin.
Chelsey M. McCullough, 23, of New London, will remain in the Huron County Jail until her merits hearing on April 29.
Defense attorney David Longo requested a "reasonable bond" for McCullough.
But Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Daivia Kasper requested the defendant be held without bond, citing her new charge of possessing heroin and testing positive for opiates.
Kasper also said McCullough has been on community control sanctions since November.
Huron County Common Pleas Judge Jim Conway said Kasper's request was reasonable.
A jury, after two full days of testimony, found McCullough guilty of two counts each of selling heroin and morphine. The jurors deliberated for about two hours and 20 minutes.
"She couldn't go to prison because she didn't have the pre-existing conditions for it," Leffler said, referring to McCullough not having any prior felony convictions.
McCullough's co-defendant and former live-in boyfriend, Scott A. Shuker, 27, of 16782 Township Road 136, Bellevue, was sentenced to 30 days in the Huron County Jail on the work release program.
