Salem Woman Sentenced To Five Years In Prison
Amie Organ of South College had pleaded guilty to unauthorized possession of a prescription form and a petition to revoke her probation on a residential burglary charge in order to get into the drug court program earlier this year. As a result, the case moved immediately to sentencing.
Judge Michael McHaney sentenced Organ to five years in prison on the petition to revoke her probation and another three years to run concurrently on the prescription form charge.
Organ was removed from the drug court program following a number of violations. They included testing positive for a chemical in cannabis, missing a call in for a random drug test, missing appointments with both the drug counselor and probation officer, not anwering repeated calls, and eventually disappearing. At that point, a warrant for Organ's arrest was issued.
