(Wednesday, October 10th) New Philadelphia, Ohio – A woman is going to prison for 18-months on a charge of corrupting another with drugs.

Jaime Beavers, 32, was sentenced Wednesday morning for the December 2017 charge.

Assistant Tuscarawas County Prosecutor Amanda Miller says that Beavers held a 15-year-old locked inside a house for about two weeks.

“That she was coercing, providing drugs too. That she kept without allowing that juvenile to communicate with anyone. She’s going to be going to prison for 18-months on the corrupting.”

Additionally, Miller notes that Beavers received a 36-month reserved sentence related to fleeing and eluding police in April 2018, which occurred while she was on pre-trial supervision for the corrupting case.

The high-speed chase began on U.S. 36, near Newcomerstown, when a Tuscarawas County Sheriff’s Deputy stopped her for a traffic violation and discovered she had multiple outstanding warrants.

“Once he communicated he would be taking her into custody for that, she fled and led police on a 23-minute chase [involving] three different law enforcement agencies which ended when Coshocton County Sheriffs’ were able to deploy spike strips.”

Beavers is also facing other unrelated charges for discharging a firearm near a prohibited property and tampering with evidence.
