After viewing the video on Friday, Framingham District Court Judge Douglas Stoddart ordered Allison Voner, 23, held on $5,000 bail on one case, revoked her probation on another case and ordered her held on a warrant for another court.
“I just saw the most incriminating video I’ve ever seen in my 36 years” in the legal profession, Stoddart said.
The video was not shown in open court.
On Thursday, probation officer Elisa Currie sought a warrant for Voner’s arrest. She told Judge Cesar Archilla that the Natick Police had obtained a video that showed Voner driving a car, which she is not allowed to do, while smoking or inhaling both heroin and cocaine, and going on a tirade against a probation officer. The video appeared to be taken outside of a courthouse.
Archilla issued the warrant and Framingham Police arrested Voner on Thursday at 2:55 p.m.
After viewing the video in his chambers with prosecutor Ben Franklin, Currie and Voner’s lawyer, John Daly Jr., Stoddart ordered Voner held on $5,000 on on open possession of herion case, without hearing Daly’s argument to free his client.
Stoddart also held her without bail for violating her probation on a credit card fraud case from Natick last year, and held her on a Brookline District Court warrant on an unspecified charge.
After the judge announced his decision, Daly tried to convince Stoddart to reconsider.
“She frequently Facebooks out entertaining videos,” said Daly. “It was meant as an entertaining video only. It was comedy.”
Stoddart said, “She achieved her goal. It was the most entertaining video I’ve seen. It was entertaining and it was tragic.”
After the judge repeated his orders, Voner asked him to send her to a drug rehabilitation facility. After her mother filed a formal request, Stoddart denied it.
“I’m a little suspect on the timing of her (Voner’s) request,” said Stoddart. “She appears to be very intelligent, very manipulative.”
Voner is due back in court next month.
