BREAKING NEWS: Area woman pleads not guilty

Tuesday, July 1, 2008

A Clay City woman was formerly charged Tuesday for her alleged involvement in dealing prescription drugs belonging to her ill boyfriend.

Jill Jackson, 49, appeared in Clay County Superior Court to be formerly charged with two counts of Dealing a Schedule II Controlled Substance (each a class B felony and, if convicted, punishable with up to 20 years imprisonment and $10,000 in fines) and one count of Neglect of a Dependent (a class D felony punishable, if convicted, with up to a three years imprisonment and a $10,000 fine).

According to court documents, Jackson was arrested shortly before 4 p.m., Thursday, after family members of the victim contacted the sheriff's department, alleging Jackson was selling the medication and improperly taking care of the victim.

Clay County Sheriff's Department officers initiated an investigation, during which at least two "buys" for prescription painkillers were made from Jackson.

Officials confirmed to The Brazil Times the victim, who had a medical need for the drugs, was unaware the drugs were being sold or that their medication routine had been altered.

Pleading not guilty, Superior Court Judge Blaine Akers appointed attorney Geoffrey Creason as counsel for Jackson, set a pre trial conference on Aug. 18, with a jury trial scheduled for Oct. 26 and issued a no contact order for her to stay away from the victim.

According to jail officials, Jackson remains incarcerated at The Clay County Justice Center on a $25,000 cash bond with no 10 percent allowed.

"tragic case of a desperate couple" I think the article said the boyfriend has nothing to do with it... I can think of better ways to survive like GET A JOB. SunCatcher47..you must know Ms. Jackson to say something as absurd as that!
