Edgartown Woman in Drug-Dealing Case Must Go to Rehab

From the case files at Edgartown District Court. Where arrests or charges are reported, they do not indicate convictions.

A 32-year-old Edgartown woman accused of conspiracy and possession to distribute heroin and cocaine has been ordered into a residential drug-treatment program, according to records on file at Edgartown District Court:

After failing court-ordered drug screenings for two months in a row, April and May, Christy L. Dobson had her bail revoked June 17 and was ordered to check into an in-patient program by June 24.

Dobson was arrested in a March raid on her 14th Street home by drug agents who said she was later found to have cocaine and heroin concealed inside her body, according to a report in the Martha's Vineyard Times.

After Dobson admitted to sufficient facts in the case, charges of possession to distribute and conspiracy to violate the drug laws were continued without a finding until Dec. 17, 2014, provided she successfully completes and is discharged from the drug-treatment program and remains drug-free thereafter.

Were there any flying dogs involved?

It could have turned out far worse for her. Two drug dealers in Falmouth just had their skulls bashed in. She should be grateful not to be in the same position.
