A woman who violated probation was sentenced to 12-30 months in prison Monday.

Angelalyn Josiahann Stockton was arrested Sept. 26, 2023, for possession of a controlled substance.

After admitting to violating conditions of probation on June 17, she was hoping for a second chance in the program during sentencing, according to her attorney Brain Filter.

Chief Deputy District Attorney Chelsea Mazza said Stockton had a history of absconding from cases and programs.

According to Mazza, Stockton has a driving under the influence charge from 2019 that she was not sentenced for and another case is pending in East Fork Justice Court accusing Stockton of giving her prescription drug to another inmate.

Stockton was denied probation and sentenced to 12-30 months in prison which will run consecutive with the sentence results from the East Fork case.

She was given credit of 124 days.
