Not Guilty Despite Court No-Show

Despite not showing up for her trial Tuesday, a Hobart woman was found not guilty of Public Intoxication. Desiree V. Carrillo, 36, faced 180 days imprisonment for Class B misdemeanor Public Intoxication after an argument at a Chesterton bar Oct. 24 involving a man she’d been involved with.

Defense attorney Nick Barnes argued that a bar is not a public place, but “it’s a private place where people go sometimes to get intoxicated.”

Police had taken Carrillo outside the bar to calm her down after she used foul language in the bar, and she had tried to call for a ride.
