BEATRICE – A defense attorney was granted a delay in sentencing yesterday, for a Beatrice woman convicted of possessing an illegal drug. Gage County District Judge Rick Schreiner granted a new sentencing date of July 5th, for Tiffanie Street.
Defense attorney Joe Casson said Street has not met with the probation office for the pre-sentence report, after being in custody.
:25 “somewhat downhill”
Casson told the judge that the St. Monica program is willing to accept Street into a program, on July 6th.
Deputy Gage County Attorney Callyn Schuck did not oppose the defense motion for a new sentencing date.
:10 “level, it is”
Street turned herself in, on a bench warrant issued by Judge Schreiner. He ordered Street to cooperate fully with state probation on the pre-sentence report. He did not reduce Street’s bond amount.
The 25-year-old Street pleaded guilty to a charge of possessing methamphetamine. She and others were arrested after police were conducting a drug investigation last fall, focusing on an apartment at 18-hundred Scott Street, where a child was present.
A syringe testing positive for methamphetamine was found on the top of a refrigerator.
