Irvine faces new charge


WARSAW — More charges have been filed against a woman who was allegedly found with hallucinogenic mushrooms last month, Wyoming County sheriff’s deputies said.

Kari J. Herbert Irvine, 33, was charged Saturday on a Wyoming County Superior Court warrant for violating terms of drug treatment court. She was committed to Wyoming County Jail pending an appearance in County Court.

Irvine was on probation for a gang assault-related conviction and had been enrolled in drug court when she was stopped for traffic violations late last month and allegedly found with several psilocybin mushrooms, a controlled substance.

She was charged with misdemeanor criminal possession of a controlled substance, driver’s view obstructed and inadequate plate lamps. She also may be facing violation of probation charges.

Irvine was convicted of conspiracy in connection to an attempted gang assault that police at the time said was drug-related.

She and five others were armed with baseball bats and crowbars when they lured a man to Warsaw Village Park. The man escaped and was not injured.

She was sentenced to probation.
