A woman previously arrested on charges of being a no-show in court, as previously reported on WHKY, was sentenced to serve jail time in Alexander County. Last Friday (January 20), 29-year-old Chelsy Lynn Combs of Stony Point was sentenced to the local jail time for contempt of court.
As WHKY previously reported, Combs was arrested on January 15 by Alexander County Sheriff’s Officers and was served arrest warrants for two counts of failure to appear on probation violation charges. Following that arrest, she was released under a secured bond of $10,000.
Combs has multiple pending charges in Alexander County that include felony counts of possession of schedule II controlled substance and possession of a stolen motor vehicle along with multiple traffic related offenses. She is also awaiting trial on Iredell County charges that include possession of schedule II, III, and IV controlled substances.
Combs is on probation as a result of convictions in Iredell County on March 23 and June 7, 2021 for possession of schedule III and VI controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and failure to stop for a school bus. Following the convictions, she received probation and a 24 month suspended sentence.
On Friday, an Alexander County District Court Judge sentenced Combs to 23 days in the Alexander County Detention Center.[Story courtesy of Rick Gilbert, WACB]
