HART — The heroin-using mom who crashed through the storefront of a building in downtown Walkerville last September was sentenced in 27th Circuit Court Monday, Dec. 18, to serve four and a half months up front of a nine-month jail discretionary jail term.

Zada Ann Holey, 22, of 6592 E. US 10, Branch Township, Mason County, pleaded “no contest” to heroin possession, Oct. 23.

Holey crashed her 2000 Saturn with her two young children in the car, according to an Oceana County Sheriff’s Office accident report.

Holey has remained lodged in the Oceana County Jail on a $10,000 cash/surety bond. Judge Bradley G. Lambrix gave her credit for 93 days served in jail.

She was arrested for the felony of cocaine/heroin or another narcotic possession less than 25 grams and misdemeanors of controlled substance use and operating under the influence of a controlled substance with an occupant less than 16.

The two misdemeanor charges were dismissed when she pleaded to the felony.

Holey “was passed out from heroin use,” states the accident report.

Her two young boys were in the car at the time of the crash, but they were not injured.

The Saturn crashed through the storefront windows and into the brick wall.

“There was evidence of narcotic paraphernalia present in the car,” Oceana County Sheirff Craig Mast said previously.

Judge Lambrix also ordered that she serve two years probation. Her driver’s license was suspended for six months with a restricted license after 30 days.

No one was inside the building at the time of the crash.
