Beer appears in court for violating current probation

Posted: Updated:
LYNDON, Vt. - Tashia Beer, who now goes by Tashia Francis, has been living in Las Vegas since being released from prison for the manslaughter of her stepmother. It's who she was living with that has her once again in trouble with the law.

Last time many saw her, she was 14-years-old.

She was found guilty of manslaughter in 2000 for taking part in the plot to kill her stepmother, Vicki Campbell-Beer in Lyndon. Beer allegedly convinced her foster brother Scott Favreau to carry out the attack.

Now, she's out of prison as 28-year-old Tashia Francis and she wants less restrictive probation. But that may be in jeopardy. She was back in court Tuesday for violating her current probation.

"The bottom line is that the state is asserting that she violated her probation specifically by living with a convicted felon contrary to condition 37 of her probation conditions that she was placed on back in '05," said Caledonia County State's Attorney Lisa Warren.

Beer admitted she was living with a convicted felon and pleaded guilty to the violation.

Since Tashia Beer now Tashia Francis did plead guilty to the violation, this now remains a question of sentencing. The judge is expected to give a ruling within the next couple of days.
