Reed trial continued

Wednesday, March 18, 2009

The trial of a Greencastle woman accused of drugging her two young children has been continued.

Amy Marie Reed, 27, was set to face a jury on April 8. Putnam County Circuit Court Judge Matthew Headley granted a request by Reed's court-appointed attorney, James Ensley, for a continuance and reset Reed's trial for May 27. Headley also extended Reed's plea cutoff date of March 12 to April 30.

Reed is charged with 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.

Reed was arrested in Oct. 9 after her 1-year and 3-month-old children both tested positive for methamphetamine, methadone, cocaine and marijuana. At an initial hearing held Oct. 14, Reed pled not guilty to all charges. Headley set Reed's bond at $30,000 cash only.

Ensley requested a bond reduction for Reed on Oct. 23, but Headley denied it. In January Reed -- who was pregnant and weeks away from giving birth to her third child -- was released from jail so she could enter an outpatient drug treatment program through Salvation Army's Harbor Light in Indianapolis.

As a condition of that release, Headley ordered that a report on Reed's progress and results of her drug screening tests had to be submitted to the court every other week.
