W’burg man indicted for meth

CORBIN — By John L. Ross / Staff Writer

A Williamsburg man jailed in the Whitley County Detention Center was indicted Monday in Whitley County Circuit Court before Judge Paul Winchester on two separate indictments.

Isaac Jackson, 54, remains jailed in the WCDC under a $50,000 cash bond.

The first indictment charges Jackson with first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance after allegedly transferring to a confidential informant less than two grams of methamphetamine on April 24. The second indictment lists three counts for charges incurred Aug. 16. The first count on that indictment charges Jackson with manufacturing methamphetamine after allegedly possessing two or more chemicals used to make meth. The second count indicts him for the offense of cultivating five or more plants of marijuana after allegedly growing six plants of the illegal drug. The third count indicts him for possession of drug paraphernalia after allegedly being found in possession of a syringe, spoon, straw and aluminum foil.

Indictments are formal charges levied by a grand jury — it is not a conviction or an admission of guilt.

Others indicted Monday and their charges include:

— Joe L. Davis III, 40, of Williamsburg, received a three-count indictment in court Monday for charges incurred July 28. The first count indicts him for theft by unlawful taking property valued at more than $500 but less than $10,000 after allegedly taking various items belonging to a female victim. The second count indicts him for third-degree criminal mischief after allegedly intentionally damaging a vehicle belonging to the same female victim. The third count on the indictment charges him with second-degree persistent felony offender after his Feb. 14 conviction in McCreary Circuit Court for second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument and his Feb. 4 conviction in Whitley Circuit Court for another charge of second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument. Davis remains jailed in the Whitley County Detention Center without bond.

— Jessie Charles Mays, 32, of Williamsburg, received a three-count indictment for charges incurred Aug. 9. The first count indicts him for first-degree possession of a controlled substance after allegedly knowingly possessing a quantity of methamphetamine, which was reportedly discovered by Williamsburg Police Chief Wayne Bird. The second count on the indictment charges Mays with manufacturing methamphetamine after allegedly being found in possession of two or more chemicals used to make meth. The third count indicts him for first-degree persistent felony offender after his conviction in May 2008 for second-degree trafficking in a controlled substance within 1,000 yards of a school and second-degree trafficking in a controlled substance in Whitley Circuit Court, and his October 2012 conviction in that same court for second-degree trafficking in a controlled substance. He was released from the Whitley County Detention Center under a $7,500 surety bond.

— Gregory Michael Sims, 62, of Williamsburg, was indicted for the offense of cultivating five plants or more of marijuana after allegedly growing 29 plants of the illegal drug. He was released from the WCDC on a $7,500 surety bond.

— Falesha L. Bunch, 27, of Williamsburg, was indicted for second-degree burglary after allegedly entering the residence of a female victim on June 22. No JailTracker information was available on Bunch.

— Richard Alvin Hendershot, 36, of Williamsburg, was indicted for possession of a handgun by a convicted felon after allegedly being found in possession of a Highpoint .40-caliber handgun. He was convicted in October 2000 of burglary in a Cook County, Ill. courtroom. He was released from the WCDC under a $7,500 surety bond.

— James Lee Hensley, 28, of Corbin, received a two-count indictment Monday. Both counts indict him for theft by unlawful taking property valued at more than $500 but less than $10,000 from the same female victim — the first count alleges the crime occurred June 11; the second alleges June 19. He remains jailed in the WCDC. According to JailTracker records, no bond amount is listed, and he also faces a parole violation for a felony offense.

— Timothy Allen Kersey, 34, of Williamsburg, was indicted for cultivating five plants or more of marijuana after allegedly growing six plants of the illegal drug on Aug. 3. He was released from the Whitley County Detention Center under a $7,500 surety bond.

— James Edward Campbell Jr., 50, of Williamsburg, received a two-count indictment Monday for charges incurred Aug. 4. The first count indicts him for cultivating five or more marijuana plants after allegedly knowingly growing 27 plants of the illegal drug. The second count indicts him for possession of drug paraphernalia after allegedly being found in possession of rolling papers, baggies, and scales. He was released from the WCDC under a $7,500 surety bond. He also has a co-defendant in this case, Mitzi Ramsden.

— Mitzi Lynn Ramsden, 54, of the same Williamsburg address as Campbell, received a two-count indictment Monday for charges incurred Aug. 4. The first count indicts her for cultivating five or more marijuana plants after allegedly knowingly growing 27 plants of the illegal drug. The second count indicts her for possession of drug paraphernalia after allegedly being found in possession of rolling papers, baggies, and scales. She was released from the WCDC under a $7,500 surety bond. She also has a co-defendant in this case, the aforementioned James Campbell.

— Matthew Jody, 24, of Williamsburg, was indicted for impersonating a peace officer after allegedly identifying himself through text message that he was WPD Officer Brandon White on Aug. 12. No JailTracker information was available on Jody.

— Dillion Lee Keith Dople, 19, of Williamsburg, was handed a two-count indictment Monday. Both counts indict him on separate charges of third-degree burglary involving the same male victim. The first count alleges the crime occurred June 17. The second count alleges the crime occurred June 29. He was booked Monday for these charges and it was unclear what bond he was released under.
