JEFFERSONVILLE, IN (News and Tribune) - A participant of the Clark County Drug Court Treatment Program sentenced
to 48 hours in the Clark County jail was released from the facility
Thursday — 154 days after being placed behind bars.
Destiny Hoffman, 34, Jeffersonville, was ordered to serve two days in
jail on Aug. 22 by Clark County Circuit Court No. 2 Judge Jerry Jacobi.
The sentence came after Hoffman provided a diluted drug screen result, a
violation of the drug court program, which Jacobi oversees.
Jacobi instructed the Clark County Sheriff's Office through a bond
notice to hold Hoffman under no bond and for her "to be held until
further order of the court."
But Jacobi never issued that order, and Hoffman remained behind bars for more than five months.
