Homeless woman in court on Manchester drug charge says she had a relapse
Police prosecutor Sgt. Stephen Reardon said Howard, who has a pending drug possession charge in Hillsborough Superior Court North involving heroin stemming from an arrest Dec. 7, 2013, in Bedford, “obviously has an issue with controlled drugs.”
Howard told Judge William Lyons that she had undergone drug treatment.
“I just had a relapse,” she said.
Because no plea can be entered to a felony in Circuit Court, a probable cause hearing was set for Aug. 22, so a judge can determine if there is sufficient evidence to send the case to the Hillsborough County North Grand Jury for possible indictment.
Bail was set at $1,000 cash/surety Wednesday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division for a man accused of threatening his girlfriend earlier Wednesday.
Daniel Rivet, 53, of 371 Manchester St., is accused of telling his girlfriend: “I’ll ... kill you.”
Police prosecutor Sgt. Stephen Reardon requested cash/surety bail for John Zylicz in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division even though he said Zylicz is serving a 2-to-4-year prison sentence stemming from a conviction in Rockingham County Superior Court.
The charges, which stem from Zylicz’ alleged sale of a stolen iPod to Mickey’s Buy & Sell, 194 Lake Ave., April 12, for $50, are felonies because they are the third or more theft-related charges.
Zylicz asked Judge William Lyons for personal recognizance bail, saying that cash/surety bail would affect his classification in the prison and get him kicked out of a program he’s in at the prison.
