Salem Woman Admitted To Drug CourtA 28-year-old Salem woman has been admitted to the Marion County Drug Court program.
Amie Organ of South College Street pleaded guilty to a forgery charge and a petition to revoke her probation on a residential burglary charge in order to be allowed to enter the program. If Organ successfully completes drug court, the cases will be dropped. If she doesn't, Organ will be immediately sentenced on the charges. Organ admitted to changing a drug prescription form from 24 to 30 Vicaden tablets. The petition to revoke her probation was based on the new forgery charge.
State's Attorney Matt Wilzbach says there is evidence both crimes were the result of drug addiction.
