Judge Wants Ex-Teacher To Get Treatment For Drug Addiction

Bond is set at $20,000 for a former first grade teacher who has been in and out of jail and court for meth use.

Tammie Lee Reed was arrested Sunday night after she allegedly tested positive for methamphetamine.

Last month Reed plead guilty to possession of meth and theft. Under the plea agreement Reed would be on probation and work release for up to two years and would have to comply with random drug testing.

In court Tuesday morning, Judge Gurley recommended that drug treatment also be a part of that sentencing.

Reed has not bonded out and is being held at the Mesa County Jail, she'll be sentenced in mid-June.
