MEDINA — A 39-year-old Medina woman convicted of drug charges and sentenced to community service earlier this month returned to court Thursday, accused of forging the documents showing she had completed the community service.
“I believe I told you last time you were in court that if you finished 24 hours of community service, you’d be done with me,” Medina County Common Pleas Judge James L. Kimbler told Teona C. Latten, of 390 W. Union St., Apt. 5.
“I did finish them,” Latten told the judge. “Whoever signed the papers wasn’t the one who was supposed to sign them.”
Latten is scheduled for a hearing next week on the matter.
This is Latten’s third probation violation since her April 2009 sentencing, according to court documents.
Kimbler placed Latten on five years of probation after she pleaded guilty to two counts of crack cocaine trafficking, crack cocaine trafficking in the vicinity of a juvenile, crack cocaine possession, cocaine trafficking and permitting drug abuse.
Her convictions are felonies of the third, fourth and fifth degrees.
