A local woman will be on a “high level” of supervision during her three years of probation.
Amber J. Boldman, 24, of 4696 Plank Road, was out on bond until she was ordered Wednesday to spend four to six months in a community-based corrections facility. A CBCF focuses on substance abuse treatment and education.
Boldman, in late July, pleaded guilty to possession of heroin. The conviction is for a Feb. 8 traffic stop when Huron County Sheriff’s Deputy Joshua Kaufman pulled over a silver Pontiac for an equipment violation on Ohio 601.
While interviewing the occupants, the deputy learned Boldman, a passenger, was wanted on an undisclosed Erie County warrant. Deputies said a subsequent search of the car revealed there was heroin in the passenger’s seat where Boldman was sitting.
While the case was pending, an Erie County judge placed Boldman on probation for a heroin-related offense.
“I’m not aware of her getting into any more trouble,” Huron County Public Defender David Longo said.
Before announcing the woman’s sentence, Huron County Common Pleas Judge Jim Conway said Boldman tested positive for drugs while she was out on bond and Erie County reported she “hadn’t done terribly well.” The judge also said a probation officer reported Boldman may have been under the influence of something while she was being interviewed for her pre-sentence report.
Boldman will be held in jail until she’s released to a CBCF. If she violates the terms of her intensive probation, she faces one year in prison.
