Woman arrested in meth case placed on probation
The Yuma woman who was arrested after police reportedly found about $1,000 worth of crystal methamphetamine hidden in the truck she was driving was placed on probation Friday in Yuma County Superior Court.
Kelly Ann Oliver, 35, had recently pleaded guilty to one count of attempted possession of a dangerous drug for sale in a plea agreement. Appearing before Superior Court Judge John Nelson, she was sentenced to 36 months of supervised probation.
Nelson told Oliver, who had been in custody since her arrest, that as part of her probation she is required to participate in the court's drug court program, which she said she would do.
“Thank you your honor. I won't fail you or myself,” a relieved and happy Oliver said after the judge informed her of the sentence.
Oliver was arrested on April 24 during a traffic stop after a canine search of her vehicle. She had faced charges of possession of dangerous drugs for sale, transportation of dangerous drugs for sale, possession of drug paraphernalia and driving on a suspended license.
