Louisville woman appears high before a judge

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- In yet another example of the drug epidemic and the impact its having on Louisville's court system, a woman appeared high before a judge.

Liana Hibbard could be seen sweating, rocking back and forth and crying. She was appearing in District Judge Stephanie Burke's courtroom last week to answer to meth charges. 

"You know, I have a past with selling and using, OK?" Hibbard told the judge.

"I'm concerned about your safety," Burke responded. "I can not ethically let you walk out of here if I believe that you are impaired."

According to the arrest report, after the hearing when officers searched Hibbard, they found needles, a balloon and crystal meth in her purse. 

She's facing additional charges of drug possession and possession of drug paraphernalia.
