A Norwalk woman recently was ordered to go to a locked-down, in-patient treatment center for violating the terms of the drug intervention program.
As a result, Mollie R. Warner, 21, of 87 Corwin St., had a conviction for identity theft imposed Monday. She admitted to being kicked out of two treatment or counseling programs, having a positive drug screen for four drugs May 15 at the Huron County Jail and failing to report to probation office visits starting in April.
"Until a few months ago, Ms. Warner was doing well," probation officer Andrea Cooke told Huron County Common Pleas Judge Jim Conway.
In December, Warner earned her GED.
On Monday, she was ordered to complete a four- to six-month term in a community-based corrections facility (CBCF), a form of prison which focuses on substance abuse treatment and education. The punishment for violating intervention was a joint recommendation between the state and Huron County Public Defender David Longo. Warner will remain on three years of intensive probation, which includes $220 in restitution to a male relative.
Warner will be held in the Huron County Jail until they are transferred to a CBCF.
If Warner violate her probation, she would face a one-year prison term.
