ROCHESTER - Eve Tarmey's mother Jazzmyn Rood and Rood's boyfriend Mark Ross were both arraigned Friday in connection with the 17-year-old's overdose death -- but legal challenges aren't the only problems they face right now.
Both are known to have addiction problems. If they do not make bail, there are treatment options for inmates with addictions.
Rood and Ross will be held at either Rockingham County or Strafford County jails and both have treatment facilities for those with opioid addictions.
After a drug and alcohol assessment, at Rockingham County jail for example, there's a 28-day program with a staff of councilors to work with inmates. Rood and Ross would be held away from other inmates based on the amount of time they will spend in county jail. If they are held in the Strafford County jail, there's a 90-day program.
It could take as long as a year before a trial date is set and if convicted, Ross and Rood could face prison time. All three of the state prisons: Concord, Berlin and the prison for women in Goffstown have treatment facilities to help addicts.
The most intense program is in Berlin but only serves male inmates. This was also the site where one employee was arrested this week for funneling drugs into the facility.
“Whether or not this potential inmate ends up in the Berlin prison, we'd have to make that decision at the time based on his needs. He may be able to receive proper treatment at our Concord facility- so that's something to consider,” said Jeff Lyons spokesman for the N.H. Department of Corrections.
