TWIN FALLS — Almost a year to the date of her sentencing for the hit-and-run death of a firefighter, a Hollister woman has been arrested on drug possession charges.
Hollie Marie Winnett, 34, was charged Thursday with possession of methamphetamine, a felony. She also faces one count of marijuana possession and two counts of paraphernalia possession, both misdemeanors.
Last year, Winnett pleaded guilty to misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter and felony leaving the scene of a fatal crash after falling asleep at the wheel and hitting Twin Falls firefighter Ryan Franklin. She was sentenced to 90 days in jail and seven years of probation on March 17, 2017.
Twin Falls deputies arrested Winnett on a drug possession charge Wednesday after probation officers found illegal substances and paraphernalia in Winnett’s home, according to court documents.
Winnett later admitted to using methamphetamine and told officers that she is pregnant.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for March 23.
