A heroin defendant had her conviction imposed and was placed into an in-house substance abuse treatment facility.

Katherine R. Beat, 26, of Columbiana, earlier had been granted treatment in lieu of conviction through Huron County Common Pleas Court.

As a condition of her two years of probation, Beat was ordered Monday to complete a four- to six-month program at a community-based correction facility. A CBCF is a form of prison which focuses on substance abuse treatment and education. Judge Jim Conway also suspended her driver's licenses for six months.

Beat was convicted Monday of trafficking in heroin. She admitted to three offenses that happened Oct. 30: Leaving Columbiana County without the permission of her probation officer, failing to report a speeding citation from the Medina Police Department to her supervisor by the next business day and associating with a known felon.

In February of last year, Beat was granted intervention. Probation officer Andrea Cooke, at Monday's hearing, said the defendant had "tested positive for opiate use as late as Dec. 20" in addition to the aforementioned offenses.

If she violate the terms of her probation, she would face one year in prison.

Yet another CBCF candidate who unfortunately will more than likely be back in the news within 6 months. Over and over we see Conway sending alot of dopers here, but i see alot of them back in the paper shortly after, it appears this CBCF isnt working, if it is no one surely is showing the good side of it..

Could face up to 1 year...maybe that's the problem. We need HARSHER PENALTIES to deter people from getting into drugs in the first place!!
