A Leesburg woman is heading to prison for nearly a year after a third failed attempt at treatment.
Amanda Stallman, 37, was sentenced in Highland County Common Pleas Court on Thursday to 11 months in prison for one count of fifth-degree felony heroin possession.
She was initially granted intervention in lieu of conviction on the charge in April 2014, but she was terminated from the program in May of this year following her admittance to alleged violations that included failing to complete two previous treatment programs and having multiple positive drug screens.
At that time she was sentenced to community control and ordered to successfully complete treatment.
According to a document filed with the court in early August, Stallman was terminated from her third treatment facility in late July, which was a violation of the conditions of her community control.
In another hearing, Brittany J. Sherbert, 30, Greenfield, admitted to violations that included failing to report to probation, multiple occasions of consuming heroin, and associating with a person she was forbidden by the court to associate with.
Sherbert was sentenced to community control last April after pleading guilty to fifth-degree felony receiving stolen property.
On Wednesday, she was continued on community control and further ordered to successfully complete treatment.
