HENDERSON, Ky. (WEHT) — A Huntingburg woman will not be spending any more time in jail following a crash resulting in another person’s death.
Wednesday morning, Martha Hale was sentenced to probation. She was arrested last December after officers accused her of hitting a pedestrian with her car in Jasper. The victim later passed away.
On that night, police say they found marijuana inside the car Hale was driving and a chemical drug test taken by Hale resulted in a “presumptive positive” of marijuana in her system.
The prosecutor’s office only pursued a charge for Possession of Marijuana, which she pleaded guilty to.
