Conely was in court to answer charges he repeatedly broke his court-ordered probation - by selling drugs, using drugs, failing to report to his probation agent, receiving an alcohol citation in Ocean City, Md., failing to get counseling, not performing 40 hours of community service and missing alcohol meetings.

Cutting off a home detention bracelet for four days of freedom last March proved costly for Brenda Elizabeth Herrera on Tuesday in Washington County Circuit Court. Herrera, 33, of 1057C Noland Drive, was released from the Washington County Detention Center on July 4 after serving her original four-month sentence on a theft/scheme conviction. Judge John H. McDowell on Tuesday added a 45-day sentence for violation of home detention. "It was not only stupid but deceitful," McDowell said, adding that he wasn't going to change the sentence because Herrera is seven months pregnant.
