Katherine Carie, 54, pleaded guilty to Operating a Vehicle While Intoxicated, a Level 6 felony, with a habitual offender enhancement, as a part of a negotiated plea agreement with the State of Indiana.
Shewas originally sentenced to 1825 days, 720 suspended with 1095 to be served on home detention in exchange for her guilty plea.
However, Carie had multiple violations of her home detention and was arrested later for escape which revoked her probation. Because of these violations and new charge, Judge Cline sentenced Carie to 1200 days in the Indiana Department of Corrections.

“When individuals fail to follow the terms of probation and commit new offenses while being given the opportunity to remain in the community, they know the consequences of their actions, and in this case, it is prison,” said Lawrence County Prosecutor Samuel C. Arp, II.
