A 23-year-old Washington Court House resident plead guilty Monday to a charge of illegal conveyance of drugs into a detention facility.
Isabelle S. Allman appeared in the Fayette County Court of Common Pleas with attorney Thomas J. Arrington.
Allman was indicted in July following an incident that occurred June 29 near Bloomingburg.
According to the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office, an officer received a call about a reckless driver and located the reported vehicle at a residence on U.S. Route 62. Allman was standing in front of the vehicle and the officer said she appeared to be under the influence of some sort of narcotic.
The officer reported that Allman said she had taken “Xanax” but then noticed injection marks on Allman’s arms and he asked her when was the last time she used heroin. Allman stated, “Approximately 45 minutes ago,” and said there was a syringe in the vehicle.
The officer reported that hypodermic needles, a spoon with burn marks, and a white residue powder were located in the vehicle. The officer said he placed Allman into custody and asked her if she had anything else on her, but she reported that she did not.
At the Fayette County Jail, Allman revealed in booking that she had four “Xanax” pills and was charged with illegal conveyance of drugs into a detention facility.
Allman also faces misdemeanor charges for possession of drugs, possession of drug abuse instruments, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
The Fayette County Prosecutor’s Office is recommending community control sanctions, but she faces up to a maximum of three years in prison and a $10,000 fine for illegal conveyance of drugs into a detention facility.
Allman is currently at Fayette Women’s Residential for opiate addiction treatment. She appears for sentencing Oct. 31.
