On August 10, 2018 Detective Brett Dammon with the Lewiston Police Department was conducting surveillance of suspected drug residences when he noticed a vehicle of interest departing one of the residences he had his eyes on. Detective Dammon called Lewiston K9 Officer Chris Reese and requested his assistance in stopping the vehicle.
This is the footage from that traffic stop.
*The video directs you here for current case status information. But why didn’t I just include it in the video? The answer is “Because I don’t have it yet.” I am waiting to hear back from the court for details, but this is what I know right now: Lydia was charged with three felony counts of possession of a controlled substance. On 3/27/19 it appears that two counts were dropped and she pleaded guilty to the third, for which adjudication was withheld pending successful completion of three years felony probation. It is unclear, but there may have somehow been 30 days of jail time, 150 hours community service, and some fines thrown in there — I am waiting to hear back on that.
What I do know for sure, however, is that on 10/29/19 Lydia was arrested and charged with violating her probation. She pleaded guilty and was sentenced to jail for a period of time I am waiting to hear back on. (Her sentence is at least 40 days, and at most 1.5 years.) She may also be facing federal charges.
