Reed released from jail, sent to drug treatment
A Greencastle woman who was arrested in October for allegedly drugging her two young children has been released from jail and allowed to enter a drug rehabilitation program.
On Thursday, Putnam County Circuit Court Judge Matthew Headley approved Amy Marie Reed's release from jail and her entry into outpatient drug treatment through Salvation Army's Harbor Light program in Indianapolis.
Headley ordered that Harbor Light had to submit a report to the court every other week detailing Reed's progress and including results from her drug screenings.
Reed, 27, was arrested Oct. 9 after her children, ages, 1 year and 3 months, tested positive for methamphetamine, methadone, cocaine and marijuana.
Reed 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 is set for March 19, and any plea agreements in the case must be filed by March 12.
The charges against Reed stem from allegations made against her to the Putnam County Department of Child Services.
Reed is currently pregnant with her third child, and is due to give birth in February or March.
Reed's bond was set at $30,000 cash on Oct. 14. A bond reduction request was denied on Oct. 23.
