A Sandusky woman admitted Monday there was probable cause for prosecutors to file a probation violation against her.
Tami S. Fields, 26, is accused of testing positive for opiates sometime this month, Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Daivia Kasper said. Fields, who was arrested Thursday, also allegedly hadn't reported to her probation officer since May.
She is scheduled to appear in Huron County Common Pleas Court for a Nov. 19 merits hearing, a sentencing hearing for probation violation cases. Fields had her bond revoked Monday and will be held in the Huron County Jail until her next hearing.
In the meantime, the defendant will be screened for possible acceptance into a community-based corrections facility (CBCF), a form of prison which focuses on substance abuse treatment and education.
"She is willing to go," Huron County Public Defender David Longo told Judge Jim Conway.
Fields originally was charged with possessing heroin during a Nov. 5, 2009 incident.
About seven months later, Conway ruled the defendant was a candidate for receiving drug treatment instead of being convicted. The judge told Fields on Monday that's still possible -- if she's accepted into the CBCF and volunteers to enter the program that takes four to six months to complete. In that case, there wouldn't be a merits hearing on the probation violations.
