By Harve Jacobs, Live 5 News

CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - 58 year old Janie Fripp is wanted for a Probation Violation, stemming from a conviction of Assault and Battery of a High and Aggravated Nature.

"Ms. Fripp kind of demonstrates a profile of the women we supervise," Probation and Parole agent Lynne Moldenhauer said. "Their lives tend to be very chaotic, sometimes violent."

Probation agents say Fripp could have gotten up to three years for her crime but came away with 18 months probation.

"One should never be fooled by the fact that she's a woman," Moldenhauer said. "She has an assaultive history. That's a human behavior."

Probation agents say Fripp has been around the block a few times with several other convictions ranging from being a Public Drunk to Criminal Domestic Violence. Her record goes back to 1985.

"It looks like she has some volatility to her," Moldenhauer said. "Given her record, and given her current offense, we're actually concerned, not sure what would be the tipping point for her."

Janie Fripp stands 5'9" and weighs 145 pounds. She's known to hang out on Bailey Drive in North Charleston.

If you know where to find her, call Crime Stoppers at 554-1111. You do not have to give your name and can earn a cash reward.
