An area woman has completed the terms of her probation following a traffic stop three-and-a-half years ago.

Ashley Seibert of Alpharetta was sentenced on charges for felony marijuana possession and speeding relating to a June 2014 traffic stop.

Seibert was sentenced in November 2015 under first offender status. So upon receiving time served for a month in jail and then successfully completing a little over two years of probation, Seibert was officially discharged of the possession offense in February 2018.

The prosecution did not pursue the manufacturing marijuana charge initially levied against Seibert since her co-defendant pleaded to that. 

According to court documents, a discharged offense may not be used to disqualify someone sentenced under first offender status “in any application for employment or appointment to office in either the public or private sector.”
