3 Corbin men indicted for drugs

CORBIN — By John L. Ross / Staff Writer

Three Corbin men took center stage Tuesday after being indicted on several drug charges in Whitley County Circuit Court.

Tanner Jenkins, 26, was handed two separate indictments. The first he received was a two-count indictment. The first count charges Jenkins with trafficking in marijuana under eight ounces within 1,000 yards of a school after he allegedly sold a quantity of marijuana for $10 to a confidential informant. The second count charges first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, this for allegedly selling to a confidential informant $105 in Ecstasy pills. Those offenses were reportedly committed Aug. 18, 2012.

In this indictment, Jenkins has one co-defendant.

The second indictment Jenkins received involves charges incurred Sept. 6. The three-count indictment’s first count charges first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance after allegedly possessing for sale or transfer “a quantity” of LSD. The second count charges trafficking in marijuana under eight ounces within 1,000 yards of a school when he allegedy possessed the drug for sale or transfer.

The third count on the indictment charges Jenkins with second-degree trafficking in a controlled substance when he possessed for sale or transfer the drug DMT.

DMT stands for dimethyltryptamine and according to drugfree.org, “(The hallucinogen) is found in a variety of plants and seeds, and can also be produced synthetically. Pure DMT is most often found in crystal form. Generally it is sniffed, smoked or injected.”

There is one co-defendant listed on the indictment.

The second Corbin man indicted on several drug-related charges is James Aaron Morgan, 26. He is a co-defendant in the second Jenkins’ indictment, which covers charges incurred on Sept. 6. The first count indicts Morgan for first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance after allegedly possessing for sale or transfer “a quantity” of LSD. The second count charges trafficking in marijuana under eight ounces within 1,000 yards of a school when he allegedy possessed the drug for sale or transfer.

The third count on the indictment charges Morgan with second-degree trafficking in a controlled substance when he possessed for sale or transfer the drug DMT.

A second indictment for Morgan involves two counts of charges also incurred Sept. 6. Count I indicts him for second-degree trafficking in a controlled substance after officers found him in possession for sale or transfer a quantity of hallucinogenic mushrooms.

The second count charges trafficking in marijuana under eight ounces within 1,000 yards of a school when he allegedy possessed the drug for sale or transfer.

Morgan received a third indictment with two counts for charges incurred Aug. 17. Both counts indict him for first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance. The first count involves Morgan allegedly selling one Ecstasy pill for $20 to a confidential informant. The second count states Morgan sold two pieces of LSD for $30 to a confidential informant.

That indictment lists one co-defendant.

The fourth and final indictment handed down to Morgan Tuesday charges two counts which occurred Aug. 18. The first count charges him with trafficking in marijuana under eight ounces within 1,000 yards of a school after he allegedly sold a quantity of marijuana for $10 to a confidential informant. The second count charges Morgan with first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance after he allegedly sold a quantity of Ecstasy and hallucinogenic mushrooms to a confidential informant for $80.

This indictment also lists a co-defendant. That man is 23-year-old Anthony Medley, who received six separate indictments Tuesday.

The first indictment, which lists Morgan as a co-defendant, charges Medley with two separate counts of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance. The first count involves Medley allegedly selling one Ecstasy pill for $20 to a confidential informant on Aug. 17. The second count states he sold two pieces of LSD for $30 to a confidential informant that same day.

Medley’s second indictment also has Morgan as a co-defendant. The first count charges Medley with trafficking in marijuana under eight ounces within 1,000 yards of a school after he allegedly sold a quantity of marijuana for $10 to a confidential informant on Aug. 18. The second count charges him with first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance after he allegedly sold a quantity of Ecstasy and hallucinogenic mushrooms to a confidential informant for $80.

Medley’s third indictment lists Jenkins as a co-defendant. The first count charges him with trafficking in marijuana under eight ounces within 1,000 yards of a school after he allegedly sold a quantity of marijuana for $10 to a confidential informant Aug. 18. The second count charges first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, this for allegedly selling to a confidential informant $105 in Ecstasy pills that same day.

The fourth indictment charges that on Sept. 6, Medley “committed the offense of trafficking in marijuana under eight ounces within 1,000 yards of a school when he possessed for sale or transfer a quantity of marijuana.”

The fifth indictment states that on Aug. 21, Medley committed the offense of second-degree trafficking in a controlled substance when he sold hallucinogenic mushrooms to a confidential informant for $80.

The sixth and final indictment handed to Medley Tuesday was for offenses which allegedly occurred Aug. 30.

Both counts on that indictment charge Medley with first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance. The first count alleges he sold Ecstasy to a confidential informant for $40. The second count states he sold 10 pieces of LSD to a confidential informant for $10.

All persons indicted by a grand jury remain innocent until proven guilty in court.
