A heroin defendant is being held in jail without bond on an allegation she violated the terms of her probation.

In early September, Carla S. Reed, 29, of 4490 Ohio 18, Wakeman, pleaded guilty to possession of heroin. In exchange, prosecutors dismissed one related count of possession of oxycodone.

While Reed awaits her Feb. 10 hearing, she will be screened for possible acceptance into a community-based corrections facility. Defendants spend four to six months in a CBCF, a form of prison which focuses on substance abuse or treatment.

In mid-October, Huron County Common Pleas Judge Jim Conway ordered Reed to be drug-tested at least once before she went to the Life Challenge program in Michigan on or before Dec. 27. Life Challenge is a branch of Teen Challenge, a Christian-based substance abuse treatment program for people of all ages with life-controlling addictions.

"Ms. Reed is well known to the court. She has a substantial criminal history," Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Richard Woodruff told the judge in October.

Reed's underlying conviction is for a March 9 incident when the Huron County Sheriff's Office found heroin in her purse during a speeding-related traffic stop.

Well since she has such a long criminal history, commonsense would be to throw her stupid butt in jail wouldn't you think?

Amen to that "rbenn"... sadly though we all know that with Mr Leffler, and Judge Conway on the job, she will get a lecture, and a stern look and then set free to never commit a crime again.. under "intense probation"..ooooohhh scary.. oh and this will go on her "permanent record"!!! local Justice is sadly a joke..

Bring back chaingangs I bet these idiots will think twice after picking up trash and cutting weeds in 95 degree heat chained to another moron.

shuckie

too bad some of these idiots don't write a bad check or something that gets you thrown in jail. why just give her another smack on the hands with a substantial criminal history and let her do it over and over again. these courts are unreal anymore.

So let's try a stricter penalty this time instead of smacking her hand.
