Watertown man gets year in jail for probation violation


A Watertown man was resentenced Wednesday in Jefferson County Court to a year in the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building after admitting he violated probation by unwittingly ingesting the drug “bath salts.”

Cheyenne J. LaJoie, 34, whose last known address was 25533 Ridge Road, also admitted that he failed to follow through with outpatient substance abuse treatment. Mr. LaJoie told Judge Kim H. Martusewicz that an acquaintance had put liquid bath salts into his drink without his knowledge.

While under the influence of the drug, Mr. LaJoie was charged with disorderly conduct for being in the middle of a busy highway, Judge Martusewicz said.

At the time, Mr. LaJoie was serving two concurrent probation sentences, both for criminal contempt convictions.
