Woman Avoids Jail Time for Drugs
MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — A Montana woman who used drugs while working at a day care facility will pay a large fine but avoid prison time.
The Missoulian reports that Autumn Heinz pleaded guilty in January to endangering the welfare of a child, criminal drug possession and criminal mischief.
A Missoula district judge ordered Heinz to a 20-year commitment with the state Department of Corrections Monday. She will spend no time in prison unless she violates the conditions of her supervision.
Heinz was ordered to pay more than $461,000 in restitution to the YMCA, which gutted the facility for decontamination.
