According to information provided by the Clay County Sheriff's Department, on July 25, members of the CCSD and Clay Community Corrections visited an undisclosed Clay County residence where Kimberly Steadman, 36, was staying after being recently transferred to the program.
During a search, officers discovered several violations of Steadman's participation in court-ordered house arrest program from Vigo County.
Steadman was taken into custody and transported to the Clay County Justice Center.
She appeared via videoconference Monday before Clay Superior Court Judge Blaine Akers to answer for the new charges.
She was formally charged with two class D felony charges, one for possession of methamphetamine and one for possession of a controlled substance, and three class A misdemeanor charges, one for possession of paraphernalia and two for possession of marijuana.
Accepting her request for court-appointed counsel, Akers entered a not guilty plea on Steadman's behalf and scheduled a pre-trial conference for Sept. 8, and a jury trial for Oct. 27.
According to officials, she bonded out of jail Monday to await further court proceedings in Clay County.
As of press time, The Times was unable to reach Clay Community Corrections Director John Tabasco for further comment regarding Steadman's case.
When contacted, officials at the Vigo County Community Corrections said they were unable to discuss any case information or confirm that Steadman was participating in program.
