BARRON COUNTY -- The Court has sentenced Jayme Odash, of Barron, WI, on a conviction of fleeing law enforcement stemming from a pursuit that occurred in April 2021 in Barron County, Wisconsin.
On April 21, 2021, a Barron County Deputy observed a van passing a car on Hwy 25, just north of Barron, in a no passing zone. The deputy attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the vehicle, however, it sped up and failed to stop for the deputy. A pursuit ensued for about 11 miles before the driver came to a stop on 13 1⁄2 Street and 20 1⁄2 Avenue. The driver was identified as Jayme Odash, of Barron, WI.
Odash was taken into custody and charged with Class I Felony Vehicle Operator Flee/Elude Officer.
Online circuit court records show that in June 2021 additional charges of Class H Felony Bail Jumping, Misdemeanor Ignition Interlock Device Tampering/Failure to Install/Violate Court Order and Misdemeanor Operating While Revoked (Rev due to alc/contr subst/refusal) were filed against Odash in a separate Barron County Circuit Court case.
Then in July 2021, charges of Class I Felony Possession of Methamphetamine, Class H Felony Bail Jumping, Misdemeanor Possession of THC, and Misdemeanor Operating While Revoked (Rev due to alc/contr subst/refusal) were also filed against Odash in another Barron County Circuit Court case.
Although details of those other cases are not known at the time of this post, online court records show that at a hearing in March 2022, Odash entered a plea of guilty to her charges of Class I Felony Vehicle Operator Flee/Elude Officer, and Class I Felony Possession of Methamphetamine. The remaining charges filed against Odash were dismissed but read in.
Odash appeared most recently on May 23, 2022, for a sentencing hearing regarding her convictions. The Hon. J.M. Bitney ordered Odash to serve 3 years of probation and 6 months of conditional jail time with an imposed and stayed sentence of 3.5 years on her conviction of Class I Felony Vehicle Operator Flee/Elude Officer. For the conviction of Class I Felony Possession of Methamphetamine Judge Bitney ordered Odash to serve 3 years of probation with an imposed and stayed sentence of 2 years, to run concurrently with her other conviction. Odash has until June 24, 2022 to report to jail.
Conditions of probation will require Odash to Maintain absolute sobriety, and successfully complete any and all evaluations, counseling, treatment and follow-up ordered by her Probation Officer. Odash will be prohibited from going onto any premises where alcohol is sold for consumption on the premises, unless for employment purposes. She is also ordered to undergo an Alcohol and Other Drug Assessment for alcohol, drug, and any mental health issues.
