Ashley Shaw Waives Preliminary Hearing


Ashley Shaw, 32, of Los Alamos waived her preliminary hearing Friday before Los Alamos Magistrate Judge Pat Casados on two counts of trafficking methamphetamine for allegedly selling .8 grams of the drug in October and .6 grams in January to confidential informants for the Los Alamos Police Department.

Assistant District Attorney Samuel Hodder told the Court there is a plea agreement open for Shaw in exchange for the waiver. Under that agreement, Shaw would plead guilty to two lesser charges of attempting to traffic a controlled substance to run consecutively and would be placed on five years of supervised probation.

An arrest warrant was issued for Shaw in April and she was arrested in Murfreesboro, Tenn., and transported back to Los Alamos. She has been incarcerated at the Los Alamos Detention Center since May.

Judge Casados ordered Shaw to remain on pre-trial services until she goes before a District Court judge.
