A 25-year-old Washington C.H. woman was sentenced to 18 months in prison Monday for stashing crack cocaine inside her vagina and bringing it into the Fayette County Jail.
Ashley Rohrer was arrested June 8 during a traffic stop in Washington C.H.
A K-9 sniff revealed items of paraphernalia in the car and Rohrer was taken to the jail where crack cocaine was reportedly recovered from inside her vagina.
Rohrer is part of an internal investigation into the death of Tiara L. Adams.
Detectives at the Clermont County Sheriff’s Office have been conducting the investigation, which will try to determine if drugs conveyed into the jail by new arrestees led to Adams being treated for a heroin overdose June 8, according to Vernon Stanforth, Fayette County Sheriff.
Adams was treated for a heroin overdose June 8, was found non-responsive in the jail June 10, and died June 13 at OSU Wexner Medical Center. Adams was arrested in April and indicted for trafficking and possession of heroin.
Jess Weade, Fayette County Prosecutor, said Monday the findings from that internal investigation have not yet been released from the Clermont County Sheriff’s Office.
Rohrer plead guilty to illegal conveyance of drugs into a detention center. She is eligible to transition into a halfway house for the final six months of her prison sentence and is subject to three years post-release control once released.
