BEATRICE – A judge has declined a prosecution-defense agreement for time served and sentenced a Fairbury woman to two years in state prison.
24-year-old Tori Schultz was sentenced by Gage County District Judge Rick Schreiner, on Wednesday, for drug possession. Schreiner said he had been dealing with the defendant in Gage and Jefferson Counties for nearly three years.
:26 “anything…on probation”
Schultz had been sentenced to three years of probation in July of 2017. The judge said she failed to comply with drug or alcohol testing and failed to make payments toward court costs, fines and fees.
Both sides had recommended a 90-day county jail term, and Schultz had already spent 103 days in custody while the Gage County case was pending. Schreiner said he was not going to follow that recommendation and said probation also wasn’t appropriate.
:05 “age of thirty”
Schultz has a pending criminal case in Jefferson County.
Following the prison term, Schultz is ordered to serve one-year post-release supervision. She receives credit off the prison term for 103 days spent in jail.
