Ex-Jackson Co. Clerk arrested in Corbin

CORBIN — By Jeff Noble, Staff Writer

A former Jackson County Court Clerk acquitted of murder nearly a decade ago was arrested in Corbin Tuesday morning, after police found on him an Oxycodone pill and 10 prescription blanks from a pain clinic.

Jerry Wayne Dean, 69, of Tyner in Jackson County, was charged with first-degree possession of a controlled substance. He’s jailed in the Whitley County Detention Center in Williamsburg.

According to Maj. Rob Jones of the Corbin Police Department, police responded to a call at the parking lot of Burger King on Cumberland Falls Highway, off Exit 25 of I-75 in Corbin. That was after they received a call about two men inside a vehicle who were arguing and had illegal drugs in their possession.

When they arrived, police questioned Dean, who was traveling in an Enterprise rental car along with one other man and two women. They found Dean had in his possession a plastic baggy containing one Oxycodone 30 mg pill. Dean told police he didn’t have a prescription for the pill, and said he had found the pill on the ground, not knowing what the pill was.

Dean also had in his possession 10 prescription blanks from a pain clinic in Florida, which were prescribed to four different people for Oxycodone, as well as other pain medications.

Col. David Maiden, Sgt. William Rose and Sgt. Rusty Hedrick assisted in the arrest. Col. Maiden continues to investigate the case.

In 2001, Dean was arrested for the murder of a former employee, Audrey Marcum. She once worked for Dean and had filed a multi-million dollar sexual harassment suit against him. Marcum was found shot to death at her home, and Dean was arrested the next day.

Dean had served as the County Clerk in Jackson County for 13 years, but lost in 2002 while he faced charges for Marcum’s murder. After a highly publicized trial, the jury acquitted him in 2004.
