Bewley Sr.
A father and son from Coal City, pled not guilty to several drug-related charges in two separate cases at the Clay County Courthouse this week.

On July 18, William Daniel Bewley Sr., 38, briefly ran from members of the Clay County Sheriff's Department, who were in the process of serving an arrest warrant at an undisclosed rural Owen County residence.

After he was caught, William Sr. and his son, William Daniel Bewley Jr., were taken into custody then transported to the Clay County Justice Center to await formal arraignment in separate courts Wednesday.

William Daniel Bewley Sr. appeared before Clay Circuit Court Judge Joseph Trout.

He was formally charged with a class D felony charge of possession of controlled substance and a class A misdemeanor charge of resisting law enforcement.

If convicted and sentenced for both charges, William Sr. could face a maximum of up to four years imprisonment and $15,000 in fines.

A jury trial was scheduled for William Sr. at 1:30 p.m., Nov. 3.

According to jail officials, he remains incarcerated on a $7,000 cash bond with no 10 percent allowed.

During a routine criminal background check, officials have determined that William Sr. apparently also has an outstanding arrest warrant in Fayette Co., W.Va.

Wow! Good work Clay County Sheriff department. Goes to show you that you can run but eventually you get caught. I say that because I'm from Wyoming County, West Virginia, not far from Fayette County. It's a shame that a father would help his son mess up his life with drugs.

Just another great example of what kind of influence we have on our children. Setting a bad example of our kids produces bad kids. What a shame.
