April 19, 2022 – “The state successfully argued that early termination could not be considered until resolving the alleged probation violation. Judge Souto then heard testimony from multiple witnesses, reviewed materials gathered from Teen Challenge, and then ruled that HEVIA had violated the conditions of her probation. However, HEVIA was afforded the opportunity by both the state and court to continue her probation and complete drug treatment at another facility. HEVIA refused, stating she would prefer to end her probation by serving time in jail.” In a hearing on April 6, the pastor and another employee said she was removed for touching, which is against the rules.

The paperwork said she was removed for “an ongoing inappropriate relationship.” But in the rules provided to Channel 9 by Hevia’s attorney, it does not specifically address that violation.
