Positive drug tests for a woman and her newborn child earlier this year were alleged with charges served this week from the South Carolina Department of Pardon, Probation and Parole. 29-year-old Desiree Lee “Dezi” Gorman of Swallow Drive, Fountain Inn was charged with Violation of Probation.

A warrant alleges she tested positive for cocaine, opiates and methadone June 11th and that her newborn child tested positive for opiates and methadone. The Violation of Probation warrant, issued June 18th, further accuses her of being behind in payment of fees and of failure to follow the advice and instruction of her supervisory agent.
