HUTCHINSON, Kan. — A 26-year-old Liberal woman arrested in Reno County on Jan. 30 for drug charges failed to get a bond reduction when she appeared in court Thursday morning.
Deborah Jones is charged with trying to arrange a drug transaction using a cell phone in what the state says is the unlawful distribution of methamphetamine. Jones is also charged with possession of methamphetamine, marijuana and interference with law enforcement.
Jones asked for a bond reduction for fear of losing her job in Liberal. However, she has prior crimes in both Seward and Meade counties. She also has a history of failing to appear in court, so Magistrate Judge Daniel Gilligan denied her request.
Jones will be back in court March 6.
