She was sentenced to 2 years supervised probation and $825 in court fees. Shuman was found possessing meth and marijuana pipes during a Powell traffic stop in September, while under the influence of controlled substances.

State v. Adam Lynn; Lynn admitted to breaking his probation for a second time. He was assessed his original sentence of 2-4 years in prison with credit for 202 days served. He had his probation revoked for failing to maintain contact with his probation officer, failing to submit to random drug testing, refusing to let probation agents enter his home, becoming terminated from Drug Court, continuing to possess alcohol and controlled substances, failing to make court payments.

State v. Colleen Searle; Searle admitted to breaking her probation. Her probation was revoked and reinstated for 3 years supervised. She was non-compliant with her counseling requirement at Cloud Peak Counseling Center and was caught driving a vehicle without a valid driver’s license.

State v. Brook Jones; Jones pleaded no contest to the state’s third petition to revoke probation. Her probation was revoked and then reinstated for 3 years supervised probation and a $250 court fee. Jones was accused of slashing a tire belonging to another individual. In August 2019, Judge Bill Simpson sentenced Jones to 1 year incarceration between jail and treatment. She was also placed on intensive supervised probation for 3 years. All these events stemmed from her underlying offense of pleading guilty to aiding and abetting delivery of meth within 500 feet of a school zone in 2013,for which she was sentenced to 5 years supervised probation. Jones and two other women were caught completing a meth transaction 223 feet from Powell High School in Jones’ vehicle.
