From the Courts - District Court: Converse given six months probation on reduced drug charge


A local woman was sentenced to six months in jail, all suspended, on a reduced drug charge stemming from a law enforcement search of a residence where she was present.

Christina Mary Converse originally was charged with a felony count of criminal possession of dangerous drugs when a non-prescribed prescription pill was found on her.

The prosecution later amended the charges to a misdemeanor count of criminal possession of dangerous drugs and Converse pleaded guilty to that charge in a plea agreement.

District Judge Kaydee Snipes Ruiz Monday sentenced Converse to six months in jail with all, but 11 days suspended and credited her with 11 days served, and waived all fees and surcharges.
