LOCKPORT – A Tuscarora Indian Reservation woman, who received a probation sentence after pleading guilty to crashing her car and killing her cousin, was jailed without bail Wednesday after being charged with violating the terms of probation.

Elexis K. Printup, 26, of Mount Hope Road, could be sent to state prison for as long as four years if she is found guilty of the violations in a hearing State Supreme Court Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr. scheduled for April 10.

On May 19, 2007, Printup’s speeding car went off Upper Mountain Road on the reservation and struck a tree. Her passenger, Cyril R. Printup III, 24, was killed. Elexis Printup pleaded guilty to criminally negligent homicide and driving while intoxicated.

Printup, whose five-year probation expired Monday, was charged in February with failing to report to her probation officer, being kicked out of a substance abuse treatment program and failing to perform 250 hours of community service, as Kloch ordered in 2008.

A probation officer complained that Printup was “eluding” him in several attempts to serve her with the violation before she was apprehended Tuesday.
