Health concerns keep Mama out of jail for the present

NANCY POWELL ¦ Staff Writer

(Sept. 28, 2012) Health concerns earned leniency for West Ocean City accountant Jenny Mama, who was given probation rather than jail time Sept. 17 on charges of marijuana possession and driving while impaired.

“You violate this probation and you’ll serve every last day of this sentence,” Judge Theodore Eschenburg told Mama, 57, in Circuit Court in Snow Hill after he gave her a suspended six-month jail sentence and put her on supervised probation for three years.

Mama had pleaded guilty in July to possession of marijuana and driving while impaired by a controlled dangerous substance on New Year’s Eve in Ocean City.

A pre-sentence investigation showed that Mama uses an oxygen tank and a CPAP machine to sleep, circumstances that would complicate her stay in the county jail.

Nevertheless, if she violates the probation, Eschenburg said he would reinstate the jail sentence and the jail would have to deal with Mama’s medical conditions. He also imposed a $500 fine on each count.
