10/17 Woman Gets 2 Years Probation for Drug Possession

A 23-year-old woman from Ripon has been sentenced to two years of probation after she was found guilty of possession of narcotic drugs. According to the criminal complaint, a Washington County Sheriff’s Department deputy stopped a car November 29th  on Highway 41 near Highway K in the town of Addison. Courtney Sobonya was a passenger in the car. A search of the car found a marijuana pipe in the center console, a small amount of marijuana in the front center arm rest and another marijuana pipe in a black duffel bag in the trunk of the car. The deputy also saw a small green and black pipe in the center counsel, along with a three  inch cigar blunt and a tinfoil square with burn marks on it. The deputy then searched Sobonya’s purse and a found a 1-inch gem bag, which contained a brownish tan chunk of substance similar to hard candy, and two foil wrappers similar to gum wrappers with a small amount of powdery residue inside. The contents were tested at the Wisconsin Crime Laboratory and the foil wrapper tested positive for the presence of heroin. She was charged with two counts of possession of narcotic drugs, possession of THC, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Sobonya appeared before Washington County Circuit Judge Todd Martens for a plea and sentencing hearing Tuesday afternoon. Assistant District Attorney Peter Cannon said Sobonya would enter a plea to one count of possession of narcotic drugs and the remaining charges would be dismissed, but read into the record during sentencing. Cannon then recommended a period of two years probation, given the fact she doesn’t have a record and she has been in counseling.
