NL woman given probation
A New Lisbon woman was given 3-years of probation for possessing marijuana plants. During a plea hearing Tuesday afternoon, 50-year old Tobi Swearingen plead No Contest to possession of THC with intent to deliver and the possession of drug paraphernalia charge was dismissed. Juneau County Judge Paul Curran accepted the joint recommendation between the prosecution and defense attorney. Judge Curran said, “There were 32-marijuana plants in the house on South Adams Street in the City of New Lisbon and it’s hard for me to believe Swearingen wasn’t aware of them. They ranged in height from 5-inches to 31-inches and she was unaware that John Thew was using it in the house. Thew has taken complete responsibility for the potted marijuana plants.” Judge Curran withheld sentence and placed Swearingen on 3-years of probation plus $310.05 in fines and court costs. “This joint recommendation allows Swearingen to care for her son and elderly mother,” said her defense attorney.
