Kauai Woman Guilty Of Heroin Possession

LIHU`E, KAUA`I (Ben Caxton) — A homeless woman has been convicted of heroin possession in a Kaua`i jury trial where her own mother testified against her. It took jurors about an hour to return the verdict on Wednesday finding Julia Scriven guilty of promoting a dangerous drug in the third degree. Prosecutors say her mother, Laurie Scriven visited her daughter on Kauai and later found Julia unconscious in a motel room near a bag containing heroin and used needles. Julia Scriven’s defense attorney says she was the victim of a plot in which her mother planted the substance in the room after her daughter fell asleep.
