When Melanie Stoner was granted a three-month furlough to allow her to be treated by a specialist in Florida for Lyme disease, she was supposed to return to court to let officials know she had returned to Cumberland County.

Stoner had pleaded guilty to assault that took place in August 2016. She was granted judicial diversion at the time.

Friday Assistant District Attorney Doug Strong relied on the testimony of Tennessee Department of Corrections Probation and Parole Supervisor Chad McCaleb when he sought to have Stoner’s probation revoked.

The problem was, according to Strong, was that when Stoner returned to Cumberland County, she failed to report to her probation officer. 

Defense attorney Jeff Vires countered that while in Florida, his client was placed on good behavior probation and that it was her understanding that she would not have to report to her probation officer. Stoner testified to that defense.

The problem with that defense, Strong told the court, was that Stoner did supply the court with updates on her treatment twice during the three months she was in Florida.

“There is a great deal of contradiction here … she knew she was to let the court know about her treatments, but not to report when she got back?”

Vires countered that there were problems with the order releasing Stoner to seek treatment which led to the confusion.

Judge David Patterson agreed with the state, and ordered Stoner to lose her judicial diversion status and to serve 180 days in jail and then be returned to supervised probation.
