Three facing burglary charges receive June 3 trial date

CORBIN — By John L. Ross / Staff Writer

Three Knox Countians facing multiple charges in connection with several November burglaries now have a trial date set.

George McAdams, 24, and Krystal Shields, 21, both of Barbourville, and Raymond Jackson, 26, of Woollum, faced Judge Gregory Lay Friday in Knox County Circuit Court.

McAdams’ defense attorney is Billy Taylor, however, Dave Collins stood in for Taylor Friday. Shields is represented by defense attorney Jennifer Nagel, while Jackson is represented by the public defender’s office.

They are scheduled to go to trial June 3, with a final pretrial conference May 31.

All three remain jailed at the Knox County Detention Center.

In December, the three were handed a 20-count indictment.

The first count alleges McAdams committed second-degree burglary after unlawfully entering the residence of Marty Jordan Nov. 5. In that same burglary, count two alleges Shields committed second-degree complicity to commit burglary. Count three indicts McAdams of theft by unlawful taking by stealing items valuing more than $500 but less than $10,000 from Jordan’s home.

Jackson was indicted in the fourth count of first-degree burglary by unknowingly and unlawfully entering the residence of Jonathan Mills Nov. 5 while possessing a firearm. The fifth count indicted Jackson of theft of a firearm after allegedly stealing a firearm from the Mills’ home.

Jackson was also named in count six of the indictment, charging him with theft by unlawful taking by allegedly stealing jewelry, money, coins and other items valued at more than $500 but less than $10,000 from Mills’ home.

Shields and McAdams are listed in the seventh count, which indicts the pair for second-degree burglary for reportedly unlawfully entering the residence of Brian Helton Nov. 8. In connection with the same burglary, the pair were indicted in the eighth count for theft by unlawful taking by allegedly stealing computers, jewelry and televisions valued at more than $500 but less than $10,000 from the Helton home.

Shields and Jackson are listed in the ninth count. The two were indicted Tuesday for second-degree burglary by reportedly unlawfully entering the residence of Chris Hibbard on Nov. 20. They were also charged in the 10th count for theft by unlawful taking by allegedly stealing televisions, jewelry and other items valued at more than $500 but less than $10,000 from the Hibbard home.

Counts 11 and 12 charge Shields and Jackson with two offenses of second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument by possessing and uttering checks drawn on the bank account of Jennifer Ducan. The first check for $80 was used at Brother’s Market Nov. 20; the second check for $45 was used at S & M Market Nov. 23.

Counts 13, 14 and 15 are for Jackson. He faces third-degree burglary, theft of a firearm and theft by unlawful taking of items valued at more than $500 but less than $10,000 in connection to a Nov. 23 burglary of the Raymond Hood residence. Jackson is accused of stealing the firearm and a welder from the home.

In Count 16, Jackson and Shields face another charge of second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument by possessing and uttering a $40 check at S & M Market Nov. 24 with the forged signature of Jennifer Ducan on the check.

Count 17 indicts Jackson of second-degree attempted burglary for unlawfully attempting to enter the residence of Jennifer Daniels Nov. 25. Shields faces second-degree complicity to commit burglary charges in Count 18 of the indictment in connection with the attempted burglary of the Daniels’ residence.

In Count 19, McAdams is charged with third-degree criminal mischief after allegedly damaging the door of the Jordan home. The final count charges Jackson with the same thing, except in relation to the Mills’ home.
