BEATRICE – A Beatrice woman who initially failed to appear for sentencing, today was given a chance on probation.
Tiffanie Street was given a 36-month probation sentence by Gage County District Judge Rick Schreiner. A warrant had been issued after her failure to appear May 31st, but she turned herself in, four days later.
Street pleaded guilty to possession of methamphetamine, and will enter a Lincoln treatment program Thursday, as part of her probation. She apologized to the judge for wasting the court’s time. Judge Schreiner said Street has had a significant substance abuse problem, including use of heroin and meth.
:41 “when you die”
Schreiner says the court spends a lot of its time dealing with substance abuse cases.
:18 “to be better”
Street and others were arrested after Beatrice Police conducted a drug investigation last fall, focusing on an apartment at 18-hundred Scott Street, where a child was present.
Street will be required to complete specialized substance abuse supervision and attend at least two narcotics or alcoholics anonymous meetings, per week. The judge told her, “if you apply yourself, your life will change”.
