New Vienna woman back in court


A New Vienna woman who pled no contest to child endangerment in May is facing a new charge of telephone harassment.

The Times-Gazette previously reported that Robyn Reedy, 38, was charged after the Highland County Sheriff’s Office and Children Services investigated “a report of severe bruising” on a juvenile at a local school earlier this year, according to an affidavit.

Reedy allegedly made the juvenile, age 6, stand in “yoga-like stances … for extended periods of time for punishment,” the affidavit added.

When Reedy was last in court she pled no contest to first-degree misdemeanor child endangerment. She was found guilty, and the state recommended six days in jail.

A co-defendant previously entered an agreement and pled guilty to child endangerment. According to the affidavit, his charge stemmed from alleged whipping. He was ordered to spend 10 consecutive weekends in jail.

In May, Reedy told the court: “I wish it had never happened … It didn’t start out putting her that position … It just progressed.”

As per the agreement, all but six days of a 180-day jail sentence were suspended. Reedy was given credit for one day in jail, and the remaining five days were scheduled for June.

Among the conditions of Reedy’s suspended sentence were that she have “no contact with the victim ever,” court records state.

Also in May, Reedy was found guilty of a probation violation. Records show that she was convicted of menacing in 2013. As such, a 10-day jail sentence was set to be reviewed in October.

On Tuesday, Reedy received a new charge of first-degree misdemeanor telephone harassment.

An affidavit filed with the court stated that the alleged victim, who was her co-defendant in the child endangerment case, came to the sheriff’s office at 1:44 a.m. Tuesday. He reportedly told the deputy that Reedy allegedly “keyed his vehicle” earlier that evening while he was in Wilmington.

He also reported that Reedy is facing a charge of criminal damaging there. Clinton County Municipal Court records did not show that charge as of Tuesday afternoon.

The alleged victim also reported to the deputy that he asked a Wilmington police officer to tell Reedy to have no contact with him and that she had allegedly been warned.

According to the affidavit, Reedy allegedly started texting him later that evening, following which he went to the sheriff’s office.

The deputy reported that he called Reedy and told her to “not have any contact with (the alleged victim),” including calling, texting, or Facebook.

Reedy allegedly said that she would not contact him. The affidavit added that shortly after 2 a.m. Reedy allegedly “sent another text.”

She is set to be arraigned on a charge of telephone harassment Wednesday. Jail records show that her bond is set at $1,000. Records add that if Reedy posts her bond, she will be on electronic monitoring house arrest on a possible probation violation of her child endangerment case.
