PARIS — An Industry woman charged with aggravated drug trafficking twice in two months last year had her bail revoked Friday in Oxford County Superior Court after violating bail conditions three times in less than a year.

Jessica Pare, 41, and Randy Aron, 41, were among seven people arrested by the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency on March 1, 2017, on charges of dealing cocaine at their home on 12 Angie Lane in Mexico. They were released on bail on the condition that they not commit crimes or have contact with each other.

On April 6, 2017, they were seen by police driving together in Rumford, and when Officer Brad Gallant pulled their car over, Aron fled and Pare was arrested on several charges, including unlawful possession of a scheduled drug and violating conditions of release.

Pare was released on $1,000 cash bail, and a month later, she and Aron were arrested at 60 Main St. in Mexico after police raided Pare’s apartment and found cocaine, suboxone strips and cash, some of which had been used to buy drugs undercover, officials said.

Assistant Attorney General David Fisher told Justice William Stokes in February that Pare tested positive for drugs that she had no prescription for on three different days.

“When she was confronted with the positive tests, she wouldn’t admit it, so the tests had to be sent out to be verified,” Fisher said. “After the first two came back positive, she admitted to the third failed test. We can’t supervise someone who won’t be truthful.”

At the time of the tests, Pare was on a supervised release contract.

Defense attorney Kelly McMorran suggested to Stokes that Pare be allowed into an in-patient program for substance abuse counseling.

Stokes said he was “torn” on whether to revoke Pare’s bail.

“On one hand, I don’t want to keep someone in jail pre-trial,” Stokes said. “On the other, I can’t have a situation where bail orders are defied over and over again.”

“I don’t have a high level of confidence that anything I’ll put in place will be honored,” Stokes told Pare. “Given that this is the third defiance of bail conditions, I’m going to revoke bail and have you held without bail.”

Stokes said that Pare would be placed on the July trial list.
