A Butte woman has been charged with two felonies for allegedly providing marijuana to two juveniles and two misdemeanors for encouraging youths to use cigarettes and alcohol sometime in November.
Police arrested 43-year-old Amy James Kadrmas on Friday following an investigation that began after officials with Butte Central High School called police, Sheriff Ed Lester said Monday.
He declined to provide more details, saying the case was still being investigated, and an initial complaint by prosecutors who filed the charges does not provide much detail on what allegedly transpired.
Those details likely will be made public in an affidavit when the case is formally transferred to District Court, where all state felony cases end up if they involve felonies. The transfers are typically made two to three weeks after an initial charging complaint is filed.

That complaint does say that Kadrmas is charged with two felony complaints of distribution of dangerous drugs on or near school property for giving marijuana to two juvenile males. Each charge carries a maximum three-year prison term and fine up to $50,000.
She is also charged with two misdemeanor counts of endangering the welfare of a child by encouraging two juveniles to use cigarettes or alcohol. Those are each punishable by up to six months in jail and fine up to $500.
Kadrmas was booked on Friday but released the same day after posting $50,000 bail.
