A Madison woman remains in jail on a federal probation violation and drug charges after United States probation agents contacted Madison Police for assistance with a compliance check at a Michigan Road apartment.
Dianna L. Resendiz, 38, faces a Level 6 felony count of maintaining a common nuisance and a misdemeanor count of possession of marijuana after the compliance check on Tuesday.
Prosecutors filed charges Thursday morning in Jefferson Superior Court.
Madison Police officers responded to an apartment in the 1600 block of Michigan Road to help with the compliance check along with U.S. probation agents. Officers made contact with three people at the home, including Resendiz.
Police noticed the residence smelled of marijuana, the probable cause affidavit stated. During a search of the residence, officers located marijuana and drug paraphernalia in the living room and a bedroom.
Resendiz admitted to police that she lived at the residence and officers located mail in the home belonging to Resendiz and one of the other people. Resendiz admitted that she would fail a drug screen by testing positive for marijuana, the affidavit stated.
Police arrested Resendiz and transported her to the Jefferson County Jail.
Resendiz appeared Thursday afternoon for an initial hearing in Jefferson Superior Court where she entered a preliminary plea of not guilty in the case. The Court allowed her to be released on her own recognizance in the case, but she remains incarcerated at the jail on the federal probation violation.
