A former Miss Maryland was given probation before judgment in Washington County District Court Tuesday for possession of marijuana.
Robin Valeria Harmon, of 55 S. Potomac St., Apt. 401, pleaded guilty to the offense and was placed on one year probation by Judge Ralph France. She also was fined $175, court records said.
Harmon also was ordered to submit to drug treatment at the Washington County Health Department, court records said.
With probation before judgment, a defendant does not incur a criminal record, but the crime can be considered by the court as a prior offense if he or she is charged with another crime in the future.
The charges were reinstated in July after Harmon, 39, failed to complete an earlier drug treatment program that would have led to the dismissal of the marijuana charges she faced.
