GREENVILLE – Darke County Common Pleas Judge Jonathan P. Hein has ordered Mya Stump to the MonDay program in Montgomery County.
Stump was charged with theft of drugs, a 4th degree felony, in 2016.
Stump appeared before Hein on Monday, March 5, and will remain in the Darke County Jail until a spot at the treatment program becomes available.
Also on Monday, Stump, 32, of Union City, plead guilty to grand theft of a firearm, a 3rd degree felony.
Hein placed her on community control sanctions for the grand theft, which took place in 2017. Stump also was found to be in non-compliance of an electronic home monitoring device while out of jail on a medical furlough.
Following treatment with the MonDay program, Stump will begin the 60-month community control sanctions.
“She understands she needs more help,” said defense attorney David Rohrer of his client. “It’s a good program to get her feet under her. She’s not my usual client.”
Stump agreed. “I feel like I need to go there,” she told Hein
Hein acknowledged that Stump seemed to understand what she should do, but also said after reviewing her criminal history she could possibly be manipulative and deceitful. He went on to explain the community control sanctions and told Stump “failure to comply” would mean “a 12-month prison sentence.”
