The justice system worked swiftly for a Bucyrus woman accused of taking heroin into the Crawford County Justice Center.
Heather L. Hunt, 26, is heading to prison for a total of five years after she pleaded guilty to a third-degree felony and two probation violations.
Judge Sean Leuthold sentenced Hunt to one year in prison in each case for violating the terms of her community control in two previous cases. Hunt was convicted of possession of drugs, both fifth-degree felonies, in 2010 and 2012 and was placed on community control.
Hunt was also sentenced to three years in prison after she pleaded guilty through a bill of information on one new count of possession of drugs. Hunt was found to have 75 doses of heroin on her person in the jail on Jan. 20. She also admitted to refusing a drug test and possessing a schedule II controlled substance on Jan. 19 in violation with her probation.
Hunt will receive credit for time she has already served in the county jail and a community-based correctional facility. Her sentences are to run consecutively for a total of five years in prison but she may be eligible to file for judicial release on the newest conviction but must serve the two years in prison for the probation violations.
Hunt was arrested on Jan. 19 for possession of drugs when she was a passenger in a vehicle driven by Tasia Myers, who was issued a citation for driving under suspension.
Leuthold also suspended Hunt’s driver’s license for six months and ordered her to pay a $5,000 fine.
