Salem woman jailed on alcohol-related charges

Prosecutor: The public must be protected


Patten agreed.

“In a period of three months, she continues to drink, continues to drive,” he said yesterday. “She is a danger to the community and if she’s not going to abide by bail conditions, for safety of anybody on the roads or on the sidewalks, she should be held until trial.”

Defense attorney Paul Garrity countered that his client should remain free, and suggested the judge put her under electronic monitoring and require daily reporting to the Salem police for a breath sample.

Korbey opted to honor Grosky’s request.

He ordered Plum held without bail pending trial. She was immediately taken into custody Monday and will remain behind bars until her preliminary hearing on the four charges later this month.

“Obviously, she has a health problem and needs to get it taken care of,” Patten said yesterday. “In the meantime, everybody else in the public shouldn’t be put at risk because of it.”
