Linton woman faces suspended sentence being revoked for alleged probation violations

Wednesday, March 7, 2012

A Linton woman faces a revocation of a previously suspended sentence for a theft charge that was ordered in January 2010.

Angel R. Walls, 27, was arrested Tuesday by Linton Police Officer Chad Crynes on a warrant petition to revoke a suspended sentence. She is being a held without bond, pending a court appearance.

The petition to revoke her suspended sentence was filed Tuesday by Greene County Probation Officer Kevin Headley.

Walls plead guilty in Greene Superior Court on Jan. 12, 2010 to theft, a class D felony. She was sentenced to the Greene County Jail for two years, with all but 180 days suspended. She was placed on probation for two years upon her release from incarceration on May 20, 2010.

Headly wrote in the petition that the end date for her probation was to be May 19, 2012 on the condition that she comply with the terms of her probation.

Walls is alleged to have violated her probation by failing to enroll in, pay for, and complete a alcohol and substance abuse assessment at the Greene County Alcohol and Drug Service office in Bloomfield. She also did not complete a drug and alcohol treatment program at Hamilton Center, according to the petition.

Walls also is alleged to have to pay the court-ordered $100 administrative fee and initial probation users fee of $100 as well as a $20 monthly probation fee.

In addition, the hearing was ordered because on Nov. 9, 2011 the court had ordered Walls to be in violation of the petition to revoke a suspended sentence and ordered her to serve the 52 days that was previously suspended. She was again ordered to enroll in and complete a drug and alcohol treatment program at Hamilton Center.

The woman was originally arrested after stuffing her purse with goods taken from the Save-A-Lot store in Linton on Nov. 9, 2009.

Walls left the store and she proceeded to walk across the street to her residence where police found the stolen items.

Police went to her residence and Walls then handed over the stolen items -- toiletries such as toothbrushes, shampoo and skin cream as well as a pack of lighter -- that were stashed under her bed, according to the probable cause affidavit filed in the case by the Linton Police Department.
