Former Jefferson Woman Sentenced To Prison After Pleading Guilty To Violating Her Probation

A former Jefferson woman has been ordered to serve her original two-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to violating her probation. Thirty-seven-year-old Deann Marie Goff’s probation was revoked Thursday during a hearing at the Carroll County Courthouse. Goff was initially placed on probation in 2015 for forging checks at a Carroll convenience store and was found to have broken the terms of her probation on at least two occasions. In September of 2016, Goff was found guilty of unauthorized use of a credit card and fourth-degree theft in Polk County, and her probation was extended to expire in July of this year. On Feb. 22, she was arrested in Polk County on third-degree theft allegations, and as a result, her probation was revoked. Goff has been ordered to serve the remainder of her suspended sentence, and pay more than $800 in fines and surcharges.
