DANVILLE – A woman, whose sighting led to police raiding a methamphetamine lab in Cooper Township, was sentenced for an unrelated charge of using someone else’s debit card.
Megan Defrain, 28, of Bloomsburg, was sentenced Monday to pay $300 in restitution to the victims, fined $300 and ordered to serve three months to 18 months in jail.
She was given time for 91 days already served in prison. Judge Gary Norton also ordered her to do 20 hours community service.
Defrain won’t be released until she has a home plan suitable to the county probation department, Norton said.
Defrain told Norton she took full responsibility for her actions which occurred while she was using drugs. “I was 22 months clean and sober and stopped doing everything I learned to do,” she said.
Her attorney Laurie Pickle said her client has an addiction. Pickle asked the judge to sentence her to time already served.
County District Attorney Rebecca Warren said Defrain has been cooperating with law enforcement, had gone to rehab, was clean when she was picked up on a warrant for the debit card charges from Jan. 22 and will testify for the prosecution in the meth case.
Defrain, who was wanted on a Mahoning Township felony warrant, was spotted by off-duty Mahoning Township Patrolman Garon Fenstermaker outside the Penn Motel in Cooper Township March 11.
She previously pleaded guilty to access device fraud of the debit card of her boyfriend Travis Boyd and his mother Janine Reibsome.
The meth raid resulted in four people, including Defrain’s sister, being arrested.
