Alleged probation violator taken into custodyFebruary 13, 2018
From Local Sources
JASPER — A woman alleged to have had repeated probation violations after pleading guilty in 2016 to maintaining a common nuisance was taken into custody Friday on a Dubois Superior Court warrant.
A warrant for Heather R. Ice, 47, 409 E. Fifth St., was originally issued July 11 of last year when she failed to appear at a probation revocation hearing.
Ice was originally charged with a Level 6 felony count of maintaining a common nuisance in August 2016 after an Evansville man had been arrested on felony drug charges and an Evansville woman was arrested on felony obstruction and attempted battery by bodily waste charges at a Jasper address where she was a property owner.
In an October 2016 written agreement, Ice pleaded guilty and judgment of that conviction was entered as a misdemeanor.
She was given probation, which was transferred to Vanderburgh County.
In July 2017, local authorities alleged Ice did not complete her 40 hours of community service.
She was also alleged to have tested positive for marijuana on a January drug screen in Vanderburgh County, failed to submit to a subsequent drug screen in February and missed meetings with the Vanderburgh County Probation Department in March and April.
Ice was taken into custody on the warrant and was lodged at 2:28 p.m. Friday in the Dubois County Security Center.
On Monday, she appeared in Dubois Superior Court. An admission or denial hearing on the petition to revoke probation was scheduled for Feb. 26 and Ice’s request for pauper counsel was granted.
