Failure to appear warrant was clerical error

Friday, February 18, 2005

A Brazil woman who became the second charged with child solicitation in the last month failed to appear in Superior Court Wednesday. Now, authorities say it was because Jamie M. Harrington, 21, was notified of the wrong court date.

Due to a clerical error in Clay Superior Court, a warrant was prematurely issued for her arrest. Harrington's actual court date was Thursday and she appeared at the scheduled time.

Harrington was arrested Feb. 7 and released on a $700 bond two days later.

Harrington appeared in sexually explicit photographs obtained by the Brazil Police Department when Tina Knight, 41, the first woman charged with child solicitation, dropped them off at CVS to be developed, according to the police report.

On Jan. 4, Knight was contacted by police and acknowledged she appeared in some of the pictures along with a minor and Harrington, the report states.

"She said that they had no intent in any sexual misconduct and they were just having fun," according to the report.

The report says police believed there was no sexual intent in the photos.

The Class D felony is punishable by 180 days to 3 years imprisonment and/or a $10,000 fine.
