Wells appeared with attorney Bryan Penick for the hearing and entered a plea of guilty to four counts of fifth degree felony aggravated drug possession and OVI.
According to the Troy Daily News, Wells said the experience “has been eye-opening for me” after Judge Pratt denied her ILC last August. She told Judge Pratt she appreciated the opportunity to seek ILC again.
Wells said she completed an in-patient treatment program, attends NA/AA meetings three times a week and submitted her treatment plan to the court last January. Her attorney requested her treatment plan and records to be sealed.
Pratt accepted Wells guilty plea for OVI and placed her on community control for two years. She ordered Wells to continue her treatment plan, undergo an alcohol and drug assessment, abstain from drugs and alcohol, attend meetings and to complete 40 hours of community service and submit monthly reports of her treatment plan to the parole office.
Pratt reserved 12 months on each count. For the OVI charge, Pratt ordered Wells to pay $1,000 fine, added six points to her license. She also sentenced Wells to serve 180 days of jail with 177 days suspended. Judge Pratt ordered Wels to attend a three-day in-patient alcohol and drug program for three days jail credit. She also was ordered to pay $140 to the Ohio State Highway Patrol for lab fees.
An Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper conducted a traffic stop on Wells on Jan. 25, 2016, on Interstate 75 near Piqua for expired registration. According to court records, the trooper also noted that Wells was weaving in her lane and even crossing the lines on each side of her lane. The trooper reportedly saw pills in plain view before searching the vehicle. The trooper seized oxycodone, alprazolam (also known as Xanax), amphetamine and dextroamphetamine.
