A heroin defendant's probation officer has the discretion to impose a 90-day jail term without a Huron County Common Pleas Court hearing.

Holly A. Daniel, 22, most recently of Norwalk, pleaded guilty Wednesday to possession of heroin.

On Feb. 22, Daniel sold four heroin bundles to a confidential informant used by the Huron County Sheriff's Office, Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Richard Woodruff said.

"Based on that, they did a buy-bust," he said.

Deputies used a warrant and found drug paraphernalia in Daniel's apartment, Woodruff said.

Judge Jim Conway followed the joint recommendation of Woodruff and defense attorney Curtis Koch and imposed a 90-day discretionary sentence. The judge ruled the term would be on top of the 67 days Daniel already served.

As part of her three years of probation, she is subject to random drug screens. Daniel, who was fined $250, must undergo substance abuse counseling and had her driver's license suspended for six months.

If she violates her probation, she faces one year in prison.

No CBCF? Now it's a "discretionary sentence"? Good grief!

Well you can't put them in debtors prison and how many spots can they actually have left in the CBCF!
She'll be back in the paper in July!
