Fails to show

A bench warrant was issued by Senior Judge D. Michael Stine for Dorothy Lois Molion, 40, of Center St., Tamaqua, for failing to show for a revocation hearing which was scheduled on Aug. 16.

The hearing was held without her and Stine found she had violated terms of her probation and removed her from the Accelerated Rehabiliative Disposition (ARD) probation program and the case was returned to the trial list. She was given a chance to clear her name of a charge of retail theft from Boyer's Market, Tamaqua. She was cited by Patrolman Michael Hobbs, on April 5, 2011, of theft of chewing gum valued at $2..59 from the store.

In August 2011 Stine placed her in the ARD program to serve 12 months and had she served without violation she could have cleared her name, however, now she must stand trial. The violation was for failure to notify her probation officer of a change of address and of a new arrest for retail theft.
