Pretty sad it was all her boyfriend she was just there and not helping him..being 8 months pregnant the police wanting her to put her life in danger by wearing a wire being an informant on dangerous heroin dealers. She took the fall for the boyfriend. Its sad because she is not a user nor a dealer. She is an amazing mother and has had clean urine screens. She is not an awful junkie like these people made her out to be. The informant testified it was all the boyfriend..that the mother was just talking and bystanding. Yet she gets the charges..and the boyfriend gets 1 aiding and abetting charge. The huron county justice system is a disgrace. The norwalk police have no honor. No dignity. I don't disagree with most of the addicts and dealers that get convicted..but there was so much more to this case. This poor girl made a bad decision by staying with the boyfriend. But she was never a user that's proven. She would have had no reason to sell because her family has always given her and her children anything they've ever needed. Why can't the county start HELPING these kids. One bad decision shouldn't give them felonies and ruin the rest of their lives. This girl has done a lot. Trying to help addicts. She enabled her boyfriend. And her children will have to suffer because of chosing the wrong person to be with.

One does not have to use to be a dealer.

lifegoeson0817-You clearly have no idea who she actually is. If she is/was such a great mother why are her 6 year old sons teeth rotting out of his head? Why is it that she couldn't hold a steady job to support her own child? Why is it that she was living at home with her parents? If she is such a great person, why is she in this court room facing these charges. Here's a hint...good people don't get put in these situations. Granted people make bad choices, but she was a walking bad choice. She was a horrible mother, that continually left her kid and home, failed to enroll him in Kindergarten. And when he was enrolled, (Not by her) She failed to take him, her children are better off with out that poison neglecting them every day.
