Wood sentenced to time served

Wednesday, January 27, 2010

GREENCASTLE -- An Indianapolis woman accused of trafficking with an inmate at the Putnamville Correctional Facility was sentenced Monday to time served.

Joni M. Wood, 20, pled guilty in Putnam County Superior Court to Class D felony possession of marijuana. Under the terms of a plea agreement, charges of Class C felony trafficking with an inmate and Class A misdemeanor possession of marijuana against her were dismissed.

Judge DennyBridges sentenced Wood to 18 months in jail, all suspended but the 19 days Wood served after her arrest. Wood will be on probation for the balance of her sentence.

She was also ordered to pay several hundred dollars in fines, complete 40 hours of community service and have no contact with inmates at any Department of Correction facilities.

Wood was arrested at the Putnamville facility, where she had come to visit an offender, on Sept. 17 after prison officials discovered her to be in possession of two balloons containing marijuana.

At her initial hearing the next day, Judge Pro Tem Scott Hoff set her bond at $10,000 cash only.

On Oct. 5, Bridges modified Wood's bond to $10,000 cash or surety Bond was posted and Wood was released from jail on Oct. 6.

Class A misdemeanor possession of marijuana against her were dismissed.

if that was dismissed , then what did she traffick ?

maybe you should take a tour of a prison. Officers put their lives on the line every day to help keep inmates in prison to keep the taxpayers safe. and this is how they are rewarded . you should be ashamed of yourself. not sure if it's the system or the people running it.either way it stinks!
