PORT CHARLOTTE — A woman claiming she couldn’t hear her probation officer knocking and yelling because she was in the shower during the visit got a loud and clear message from a judge.

Valda Lenette Morris was sentenced to 30 months in state prison Monday for violating her probation.

Morris, 55, testified that when her probation officer arrived at her Old Homosassa apartment in September, she couldn’t hear her knocks or yells because she was in an outdoor shower with her boyfriend.

“I had other things on my mind at the time,” Morris told Circuit Judge Ric Howard.

The probation violation was her second since Howard spared her prison time for pleading guilty to grand theft in 2002.

Don’t drop the soap.
