Mom barred from seeing daughter, 6

LORAIN — A Sheffield Lake woman shot with a Taser inside the Sheffield police station last year cried when she realized her latest arrest comes with a protection order barring her from contacting her 6-year-old daughter, as well as the girl’s father.


Kristina Fretter, 32, was told she could not call, see, contact or be within several hundred feet of the home she shares with her live-in boyfriend and their daughter. Lorain Municipal Court Judge Thomas Elwell Jr. issued the protection order Thursday during Fretter’s arraignment on charges of handling a firearm while intoxicated and domestic violence.

Fretter was being held at the Lorain County Jail on a $25,000 bond.

Police allege Fretter tried to load a shotgun while drunk after a violent fight with her boyfriend at the couple’s Elmwood Drive home. Brendon Naylon, Fretter’s boyfriend, called police after the two became involved in a fight Tuesday evening while their daughter was asleep upstairs.

County Children Services has been investigating the family since July 10 and is working with family members, said Patti-Jo Burtnett, agency spokeswoman. Burtnett would not disclose any details of the investigation.

This is Fretter’s fourth arrest in the past year.

In November, Fretter was stunned with a Taser while in handcuffs in the Sheffield Police Department booking room after being picked up for drunken driving. The officer who fired the Taser, Edward Long, resigned, and charges were dropped against Fretter in exchange for her promise to not sue the village.
