A Wayne County woman will spend time in prison for her second violation of probation in Cayuga County.
In 2013, Amy VanDeMortel, of Red Creek, was sentenced to probation and community service for selling cocaine in Cayuga County. At the time, she told Judge Thomas Leone he would not see her in court again. But he did: twice.
VanDeMortel’s first violation came in 2016 when she was charged with petit larceny for changing the tags on several items at a store in an attempt to purchase them for less than their worth. She again apologized to the court, saying “it won’t happen again,” and was restored to probation.
