A trial date was set Thursday in Putnam County Circuit Court for a Greencastle woman accused of drugging her two young children.
Amy Marie Reed, 27, was arrested Oct. 9 after her children, ages 1 and 3 months, tested positive for methamphetamine, methadone, cocaine and marijuana.
Reed, who faces charges of Class C felony neglect of a dependent (two counts), Class C felony contributing to the delinquency of a minor (two counts), Class D felony neglect of a dependent and Class B misdemeanor interfering with a drug or alcohol screening test, will face a jury on April 8 if she and her court-appointed attorney James Ensley decide to take the case to trial. Reed's final pretrial conference was set for March 19, and any plea agreements in the case must be filed by March 12, Judge Matt Headley said.
The charges against Reed stem from allegations made against her to the Putnam County Department of Child Services. Reed was arrested by Charles Bollinger, an investigator for the Putnam County Prosecutor's Office.
Reed did not appear in court Thursday. Ensley said his client was pregnant, and requested that Headley set her next court dates past the time when she was due to give birth.
"That would be less stress for my client," he said.
Reed's bond was set at $30,000 cash on Oct. 14. A bond reduction request was denied on Oct. 23.
Ensley said he was attempting to get Reed into some type of drug and alcohol rehabilitation program, and that he would likely be petitioning the court for bond reduction or modification before Reed's next court date.
