Woman faces felony drug charge
A Johnson Lane resident is facing a felony drug charge in East Fork Justice Court on Wednesday after she was arrested last weekend.
Erica M. Cervantes, 42, sought release on her own recognizance on Monday. That was opposed by prosecutor Erik Levin, who asked her bail be set at $10,000 bondable.
Cervantes argued she isn’t a flight risk and promised to come to court. East Fork Justice of the Peace Cassandra Jones left bail at $3,000.
