A judge ruled that a local woman who violated her separate community control sanctions will be discharged unsuccessfully from probation.
Michelle L. Sexton, 40, had served nearly all of the time that Huron County Common Pleas Judge Jim Conway could have imposed. She admitted to violating her probation Monday.
Sexton, in March 2012, was ordered to pay almost $855 in restitution to the Huron County Sheriff’s Office for the damage she did to a deputy’s cruiser. During the Oct. 30, 2011 incident, she kicked out the rear window and a passerby assisted the deputy in helping detain Sexton until three Norwalk police officers responded for assistance.
The former Willard woman pleaded guilty to escape. Sexton was discharged from a CBCF in February after successfully completing the program.
In court Monday, she admitted to the following probation violations: May 6 convictions of driving under the influence (DUI), driving with a suspended license and going left of center through Upper Sandusky Municipal Court and on Feb. 9, the Carey Police Department charged her with a curfew violation and DUI. Her probation officer, Andrea Cooke, said Sexton was with a known convicted felon during the Feb. 9 incident. Also, Sexton failed to notify her probation officer of her new residence and didn’t show up for scheduled office visits since March.
The judge ruled Sexton, who has served three weeks short of the maximum punishment of one year, won’t serve any further time behind bars.
