The deputies found the drugs while searching for evidence of theft on a complaint filed by her estranged husband. She was released after posting $7,600 bond. Formal charges are expected this week.

This is absolute slander. I know this lady, and shes a total sweetheart, and a commendable kind hearted individual. Not only is this article poorly written by what appears to be someone too proud of an associates in journalism, but its an over exaggerated rendition of loosely pieced together "facts", complied into what seems to be a small town witch-hunt; country folk locals looking for a hometown antagonist to gloat about.
