Livingston Woman Sentenced for Bringing Methamphetamine Into Courthouse, LIVINGSTON, July 7, 2017 - Yesterday (07/06) in the 411th District Court of Polk County, Texas, a Polk County Jury convicted Ashley 35 year old Renee Roach, of Livingston, of the State Jail Felony offense of Possession of a Controlled Substance – Methamphetamine. The trial was presided over by District Judge Kaycee Jones. Polk County Assistant Criminal District Attorney Kari Allen presented evidence that on March 17, 2016, Roach entered the Polk County Judicial Center with a baggie that contained methamphetamine concealed in the purse that she was carrying. During a routine security screening, the methamphetamine was discovered by Polk County Sheriff’s Deputy and court security officer Jessi Stanton. After the jury returned the guilty verdict, Judge Jones sentenced Roach to mandatory period of probation, ordered that she pay a fine of $1000 and perform 200 hours of community service. Stated Polk County District Attorney Lee Hon following the jury’s verdict, “it’s probably not a good idea to bring meth into the courthouse.”
