LIVINGSTON COUNTY – A young woman came through on her promise to fess up and face the consequences of her actions after fleeing to California from C and D felony drug charges, and returning to face the music.

Caitlin Jones, 26, fled to California after her arrest for Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the Fourth Degree and in the Fifth Degree, for possession of multiple strips of Suboxone, and the District Attorney’s Office accordingly withdrew their original offer of six months in jail and five years’ probation, leaving Jones with little choice but to pled guilty to her charges and be sentenced to two years in prison and two years’ post release supervision.
“I’m sorry for what I did, and I am ready to face the consequences,” Jones told the court, in some moments choking back tears. “I ran because I was afraid of the jail time, and when I heard this was the new offer I wasn’t even angry about it anymore because I want to man up to what I did.”
Though she said that Shock camp, a military style prison boot camp, would help her get her life back on track, the court denied her Shock eligibility since she turned away drug treatment court as part of the original deal.
