Placeholder Image
A woman has been sentenced on drug smuggling charges after she failed to heed the warning of police to give up her stash before being booked at Warren County Jail.The woman, Destiny Hodges, 37, was directed to serve 120 days of an 11-month, 29-day sentence, pay $800 plus costs, perform 24 hours public service work and lose her driver license for one year for possession of drugs and driving on a revoked license. She was given another 90 days in jail for violation of probation since her smuggling charge broke her probationary agreement that came from an earlier conviction.Hodges was pulled over by McMinnville Police Sgt. Ben Cantrell after he saw her behind the wheel of a Nissan Altima on Couch Street. He knew her license was revoked for a prior drunk driving conviction earlier in the year.She was pulled over, placed under arrest and put in the back of the policeman’s cruiser.“I saw her moving around suspiciously in the rear seat of my patrol unit,” he recalled, noting the movement prompted him to issue a warning.
