According to court documents, Magistrate Judge Sam Sheldon ordered Shry held pending a bail hearing because of the weight of the evidence against her, her prior criminal history, her participation in criminal activity while on probation, parole or supervision, her history of alcohol or substance abuse, her lack of stable employment, her lack of a stable residence and prior violations of probation, parole or supervised release.

In a court filing, Sheldon wrote that Shry, “suffers from depression and has a long history of substance abuse.

She denies using any illegal substances for the past year. However, according to the defendant’s father, she excessively drinks beer daily.

Defendant lives with her boyfriend, but he is presently charged with a family assault against her.

Defendant has two children, ages 17 and 19, who currently live with her parents.”

Her father, Mark Shry, testified at her detention hearing and said his daughter is a “non-violent alcoholic,” according to the court filing. Sheldong wrote that he testified, “that she sits on her couch daily watching the news while drinking too many beers. She then becomes agitated by the news and starts calling people and threatening them.”

Her father said “his daughter never leaves her residence and therefore would not act upon her threats,” Sheldon wrote. Mark Shry volunteered to let his daughter live with him and her mother and to serve as a third-party custodian, according to the court filing.
