Sentencing postponed in ex-YMCA day care employee meth case
MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — Sentencing for a Montana woman who pleaded guilty to charges related to smoking methamphetamine in a YMCA Learning Center for children has been postponed so sides can review restitution in the case.
The Missoulian reports Autumn Heinz pleaded guilty in January to using meth in the Missoula facility’s laundry room and employee bathroom, which effectively dispersed the meth residue throughout the building.
Heinz’s sentencing was set for Monday, but a few items in the total restitution claim — about $474,000 — from the YMCA prompted Missoula District Court Judge Robert Deschamps to hold off on sentencing until parties could review the claim.
Heinz’s defense asked for three weeks’ time to review the receipts turned in by YMCA, saying there was no “obvious correlation” between some of the line items and the receipts turned in by the YMCA.
