Tamera S. Wade, 46, has been ordered by Putnam Court Circuit Judge Thomas Milligan to be held in the Putnam County Jail without bond until a court hearing is held. No court dates have yet been set.
Wade was convicted of Class D felony theft for stealing more than $130,000 from a former employer. Milligan sentenced her to 2 1/2 years -- 18 months on home detention and the balance of the time on probation. Wade was also ordered to complete 1,000 hours of community service.
If Wade is convicted of violating her home detention, Milligan could order her to spend any of the time left in her sentence in jail.
Court documents said Putnam County Community Corrections had received several calls from citizens over the last few months saying they had seen Wade out of her home.
According to a probable cause affidavit and petition to revoke home detention signed by Putnam County Community Corrections Officer Nate O'Hair, Wade violated the terms of her home detention by:
* Going to a store in Plainfield in late December and going to the Greencastle Wal-Mart on Jan. 20.
* Reporting late for a community service assignment at the Crisis Pregnancy Center in Greencastle on Jan. 21.
* Staying away from home after being turned away from a community service assignment at Hendricks County Hospital on Jan. 23.
* Refusing to comply with orders during community service hours at the Greencastle Fire Department on March 19 and March 25.
* Going to Long John Silver's restaurant in Greencastle on May 26.
* Attending functions at her youngest child's school on May 20 and 27 without permission to do so.
* Reporting late for an appointment with Putnam County Community Corrections on May 29.
Court documents said officials went over the terms of her house arrest with her several times as incidents were reported.
"Putnam County Community Corrections has monitored Tammy Wade for several months while she is serving her sentence on home detention and continues to encounter situations where Tammy does not follow her schedule and goes to places unauthorized," O'Hair wrote in the affidavit. "Tammy has signed the home detention contract and a set schedule of where she is supposed to be each week, and (she) continues to fail to abide by the schedule.
"Putnam County Community Corrections has found Tammy Wade to be ineligible for home detention due to her violating the home detention contract on several occasions," O'Hair continued. "Putnam County Community Corrections is asking that Tammy Wade be removed from the home detention program immediately."
Wade stole a total of $130,828.05 over a four-year period from Edward Wood & Co., an accounting firm in Greencastle, where she was employed as a bookkeeper. She committed the thefts by writing 183 checks to herself off a client's account.
Several people -- including her husband, her mother, her oldest son and the pastor of her church -- took the stand at Wade's sentencing hearing and spoke about her good character before she committed the thefts.
"Maybe it was depression, maybe it was a chemical imbalance," Wade said at her sentencing hearing. "It's hard for me to comprehend that it happened."
