Woman to be interviewed for drug intervention

A Lorain woman will be held in the Huron County Jail until she is interviewed for possible acceptance in the drug intervention program.

Angela L. Wargo, 24, is charged with trafficking in a counterfeit controlled substance in connection with a Feb. 23 incident. According to her indictment, the "offense was committed in the vicinity of a juvenile."

Defense attorney Reese Wineman requested Wargo be released on a personal recognizance (PR) bond. Wargo, who hasn't been able to post 10 percent of a $5,000 bond, told Huron County Common Pleas Judge Jim Conway she has to go to Lorain to take care of an unspecified misdemeanor.

Conway said he expects Wargo to be interviewed Thursday and added he would consider releasing her on a PR bond. That means she would sign a court document in which she promised to come to future hearings without having to pay any money.

If Wargo is granted intervention, that means she would be placed on probation and if she successfully completes a substance abuse program, she wouldn't have a conviction on her record.
