She shouldn't worry too much, this repeat drug offender served less then 90 days for worse charges. "At the conclusion of the traffic stop, Agents arrested Ms. Jerman for a second degree felony charge of trafficking in ecstasy, a fourth degree felony charge of trafficking in ****** and a fifth degree felon. The trafficking charges were elevated by one degree due to the fact that the transactions took place within 1,000 feet of a school."

The word bleeped is H E R O I N and Jerman just got busted for parole violation AGAIN in June 2013, (supposedly a "felony") in regards to the below mentioned drug arrest of July 2010 and oh my! She's going off to drug rehab for 3 months. AGAIN!! This is her 4th or 5th time in rehab, on our dime. She plays the males running the justice department here like a violin. You'd think sooner or later they'd catch on to her sobbing 'oh I am so sorry' routine. She also violated her parole (again another alleged "felony") on 09-03-12 for the 2010 drug arrest. And we won't even mention the meth lab found in her apartment in 2009; which was faaaar from her first drug arrest and conviction. So don't worry too much, just cry, look helpless and afraid. It apparently works for Jerman, or something certainly does. So sorry Rodney, the trash stays on our streets, again and again and again and...........

You know, it would be nice if the Times went through the repeat drug offenders list, especially those with serious drug convictions to tell us just how much jail time they actually served. I wonder how many like Jerman served less then 90 days in the local jail, even after the meth lab arrest, the selling within 100 ft of a school drug arrest followed by 2 parole violations arrests. So that's what? 4 so called 'felonies' in less then 4 years?

She hasn't been sentenced yet just convicted. I am sure we will get at least 2 weeks in county.

How much time did obama spend in the slammer for using "a little blow"? Oh, what, you say, NONE!!??

At least Bush's use of alcohol was legal. obama just was lucky he was never caught. maybe that's what he meant when he said he was just like Trayvon, a known drug user.

How are these court proceedings not a violation of this woman's 6th Amendment Rights? The witnesses were not produced in court for cross examination. Sounds like grounds for an appeal to me.

I'm commenting on a 6th amendment rights violation guaranteed by the US Constitution and the Constitution of the State of Ohio. I wonder about why there is a consistent and persistent use of confidential informants in Washington County. CI's are criminals who law enforcement gives tremendous power. CI's are criminals who live like they usually do, doing drugs, committing crimes, creating havoc, while eliminating the competition with the assistance of law enforcement.

The definition of "informant" is someone who got busted for drugs and is willing to get someone else busted in exchange for lesser charges. This is nothing more than an exercise in wasting taxpayer dollars. It will do absolutely nothing to address the substance abuse problem. There will be another 'dealer' ready to go right away. Strung out junkies are fabulous customers and will not tolerate a lapse in service... they'll find another source.

The government is funding both sides of the War on Drugs.

The only sane answer is to surrender the unwinnable battle. Just decriminalize drug usage. Didn't the US learn that Prohibition doesn't work??

Not all informants have had run ins with cops. Some informants are criminal justice students, cops, retired cops, normal citizens trying to help, law enforcement junkies that never made it in the career. They do not get paid so not using tax payers dollars! And they have to be trusted, these people have to give reliable information and most of the time they receive nothing in return. And if a criminal receives anything for the information it's a lesser punishment sometimes not even that. It depends on the crime and the orc sentencing standards of the crime.
