After two arrest warrants related to violation of its terms, the Drug Offender Sentencing Alternative has been revoked for convicted burglar Jessica Detrick.
As reported here last Saturday, she was arrested again after failing to return to residential drug treatment as ordered following a previous failure to comply. DOSA is offered to some offenders as an alternative to jail/prison, but they are warned that the standard sentence remains a possibility if there is trouble like this. This case is related to two residential burglaries for which she was charged last year, in Highland Park and Fauntleroy; at the time she was described as having a multi-state criminal history and 38 King County warrants since 2000, though this was only her fourth felony conviction. She plea-bargained and got the DOSA sentence last fall. Shortly after she ended three months in residential treatment in January, an arrest warrant was issued for failure to comply with reporting requirements; she was arrested in February and ordered to stay in jail until a new residential-treatment space opened for her, but when it did, she didn’t show up, and a new warrant was issued, leading to her arrest a week ago. At a hearing yesterday, court documents show, Detrick, 37, “agreed to voluntary revocation” of DOSA, resulting in a 15-month state-prison sentence with credit for time served.
