Community Correction reports drug-related death

Posted By on Fri, Jul 13, 2018 at 11:04 AM

Melissa Maier, 28, died at a Memphis hospital Thursday after transfer from the East Central Arkansas Community Correction Center in West Memphis for treatment of distress believed to be drug-related.

From a Community Correction Department release:

Maier arrived at the East Central Center yesterday. She was a Drug Court participant and had been ordered by the judge to complete 60 days in ACC’s short-term drug treatment program. Maier was drug tested upon her arrival and was positive for two illegal substances. Testing positive is not unusual for Drug Court commitments as they are usually sent to treatment because of their continued drug use.

Maier was placed in the Drug Court program in Arkansas county in May because of two drug-related convictions. State Police are investigating Maier’s death, which is standard procedure.
