A woman who has been arrested on drugs and prostitution-related charges twice this year by Mentor Police was sentenced Wednesday morning in Mentor Municipal Court.
Jamie Gammel, 33, of Mentor, was first arrested by police in August at a Mentor hotel after she advertised her services on backpage.com.
Officers went to her room at Studio 6 and found a make-shift massage parlor with a table, oils and sex toys, police said.
She subsequently pleaded guilty to charges of prostitution, drug possession (specifically, suboxone) and possession of criminal tools -- all misdemeanors.
Then, while awaiting her sentencing on the first case, police again found her advertising illicit services online.
So, in October, she was arrested from the same hotel on charges of soliciting and possession of drug paraphernalia. She has since pleaded no contest to those charges and was found guilty.
Judge John Trebets sentenced Gammel to 180 days in jail but he suspended 118 of those days and gave her credit for the 62 days she has spent in jail since October.
That means she can avoid spending any more time in jail on this case if she stays out of trouble.
Gammel was also fined $300.
