Wood County D.A. Employee Jailed

An employee of the Wood County District Attorney's office is jailed on "probation violation" charges. 29-year-old Joyce Lynn Bellew was arrested last Thursday on a probation warrant out of Colin County. Bellew had performed more than 270 hours of community service with the Wood County D.A.'s office, working with special victims division. She had been on probation more than a year for possession of heroin, but her superiors say she told them about it.  Many were sad to hear the news, saying Bellew was trying to rebuild her life. Bellew was originally arrested on drug possession charges in Colin County in March 2005.
