Nicole R. Cassavoy thanked the judge for sentencing her to a locked-down substance abuse treatment center.
The former Norwalk woman told Huron County Common Pleas Judge Jim Conway even though she was kicked out, she said, "I still did learn a lot." She said she planned to use what she learned in the future to better herself.
Cassavoy, 23, now of East Palestine, admitted Monday she was kicked out of a community-based corrections facility Sept. 24. She had spent 77 days in a CBCF, a form of prison which focuses on substance abuse treatment and education, starting July 10.
Probation officer Dexter Chandler told the judge that Cassavoy had nine "write-ups" for various infractions, with the last one being on an allegation of testing positive for drugs. He said CBCF officials alleged Cassavoy had tampered with the urine because it tested cold.
Huron County Public Defender David Longo shared some information about the CBCF infractions during an early October hearing. He said CBCF officials gave Cassavoy two drug tests about Sept. 24, both which resulted in clean screens, and later alleged there was a "culmination of small things," which included a smoking violation and having an extra pair of jeans.
"This is Miss Cassavoy's second violation of probation," Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Daivia Kasper said.
In February, the defendant was accused of testing positive for opiates.
"She also had some drug paraphernalia on her," Kasper said during an earlier hearing.
Cassavoy will be unsuccessfully kicked off probation after she serves 60 days in the Huron County Jail.
Her underlying conviction is attempted trafficking in oxycodone for a March 19, 2011 incident.
In March 2012, Cassavoy was ordered to reimburse the Norwalk Police Department $40 to cover the cost of drug testing. She also was fined $250 as part of her three years of probation.
