He was booked into the Laurel County Correctional Center Nov. 15 and released five days later on 10 percent of a $25,000 bond.

In November 2001 in Laurel Circuit Court, he was sentenced to four years probated for four years for third-degree burglary. That same day he was convicted of his first offense of first-degree possession of of a controlled substance, for which he was sentenced to one year probated for four years. In November 2003, he was convicted of first-degree promoting contraband In Laurel Circuit Court and received a one-year sentence. In December 2006 he was sentenced to four years in Champaign County, Ohio for illegal assembly or possession of chemicals for the manufacturing of drugs. In February 2008 in Laurel Circuit Court, he was convicted of a convicted felon in possession of a firearm and was sentenced to three years, and was convicted of his first offense of first-degree possession of a controlled substance and sentenced for three years. The fourth count on the indictment charges Kazee with being a first-degree persistent felony offender after three previous convictions in Laurel Circuit Court. In September 2002 he was sentenced to one year, six months for three counts of fraudulent use of a credit card more than $100. In January 2005, he was convicted of first-degree wanton endangerment and first-degree fleeing or evading police, for which he was sentenced to one year probated for two years. In January 2008, he received a five-year sentence for his fourth offense of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The fifth count indicts Murray for being a second-degree persistent felony offender after two previous convictions in Laurel Circuit Court. In April 2011 he received a five-year sentence for third-degree burglary. That same day he was convicted of theft by unlawful taking and received a five-year sentence. Fields was remanded from circuit court and jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center Friday. JailTracker records had no bail listed. Kazee remains jailed on a $10,000 cash bond for these charges. It was unclear whether Scalf or Murray have been arrested or booked on these charges.
