A Norwalk woman has to serve the remainder of her prison term for violating the terms of her probation.

Megan L. Derby, 28, was ordered Monday in Huron County Common Pleas Court to serve the rest of her 24-month prison term.

"She only had 130 days left to do," Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Daivia Kasper said. "She tested positive for opiates and oxycodone and she admitted to using heroin."

The positive drug screen happened April 22. Kasper said Derby admitted to using heroin one day earlier.

In late June 2013, Derby was released early from prison. She had started serving a two-year term at the Northeast Pre-release Center for bringing a prescribed "mood stabilizer" into the Huron County Jail.

Most recently, Huron County Sheriff's Detective Sgt. Josh Querin stopped a vehicle in connection with having fictitious license plates April 22 on West Seminary Street.

Derby, a passenger, appeared to be under the influence of narcotics, Querin said earlier. Parole officers Andrea Cooke and Steve Bogner responded to the scene at the detective's request.

"Officer Cooke also believed Megan Derby was under the influence of narcotics," said Querin, who went to Derby's residence with the officers. "We conducted a search at the residence and located numerous syringes used for heroin and a small amount of suspected heroin."



Go Directly to Jail. Do not pass Go. Do not collect $200.
