?    Among a number of charges filed against a Jeffersonville man in Scott Circuit Court was a Notice of Prior Offense.
Brice A. Wilson, 28, is charged with carrying a handgun without a license, receiving stolen property, possession of a controlled substance, attempted residential entry, possession of marijuana and public intoxication. The handgun offense is a Class C felony. Counts 2 to 4 are all Class D felonies. The marijuana and intoxication charges are misdemeanor offenses.
    The case developed against Wilson when Austin Patrolman Shawn Hurt was dispatched to an apartment in Village Court on January 22. Dispatchers had been told by a woman that her ex-boyfriend was attempting to break in.
The officer talked to Wilson’s companions, Wilson’s brother and the brother’s girlfriend, and they told him that Wilson had been residing with them for about a week. The couple said that Wilson had wanted to “go riding around,” the girlfriend saying she did not know that Wilson was going to his ex-girlfriend’s apartment.
    Joined by Sheriff’s Deputy Joe Johnson and Reserve Deputy Mike Tscheulin, Ptl. Hurt placed Wilson under arrest. A search of his person reportedly revealed a tube filled with what was identified as Lortabs, a Schedule 3 controlled substance. Deputy Johnson also noted Wilson was wearing a holster. A Kel-Tec 9 mm handgun was found by Res. Deputy Tscheulin under the car in which the brothers and girlfriend had arrived. Beer was seen in the car by the officers, the probable cause affidavit indicated.
    Wilson’s previous criminal history resulted in County Prosecutor Jason Mount filing a Notice of Prior Offense. His past convictions include charges of resisting law enforcement, forgery, handgun violation, carrying a handgun without a license and burglary dating from 1999 to 2007. The notice could increase any sentence Wilson may receive from the new charges filed against him.
    In his initial court appearance on January 26, Wilson pleaded not guilty to the offenses. Bail was fixed at $75,000 corporate surety or full cash, and a trial date of June 2 was scheduled.
    Wilson will be represented by a public defender.
    As of February 6, Wilson was listed as a resident at the Scott County Security Center in Scottsburg.

?Big fourth quarter by Salem Lions buries SHS Warriors PDF Print E-mail

?    There had been much hype in Southern Indiana about the battle for the Mid-Southern Conference title.
    Most people picked either Silver Creek or Salem to take the crown, but Scottsburg was undefeated in MSC play and Salem had one loss going into their Friday, January 16, game.  The Warriors had been a little bit of a sleeper, and if they could protect their home court, they would be in good position with only games against Clarksville and Silver Creek remaining.
    Gunner Erwin and the Lions had other ideas for the Warriors however. They played tough in Meyer Gym, taking a 24-22 lead into halftime.
    The third quarter went Salem’s way, the score being 39-31 when the buzzer sounded.
    Most fans that follow Scottsburg basketball know that the Warriors have been a fourth quarter team this season, but again, the Lions had different ideas. Erwin led the Lions, outscoring Scottsburg 25-9 in the fourth to take a 64-40 win on the road and giving the Warriors their first conference loss.
    Matt Bridgewater and Mason Gregory led the team scoring with 12, and Erwin led Salem with 16.
    Scottsburg in theory would have had to win against Salem to have a share of the title, but the Brownstown Braves lent a helping hand, knocking off Silver Creek to give all teams atop the MSC standings one loss and taking that contest back to square one again.

?Mom charged with failing to see that child attends school PDF Print E-mail

?    A Scottsburg mother has been charged with violating the Indiana Compulsory School Attendance Law.
    Pauline L. Pappas, 37, will face trial on the charge on April 6, according to court records.
    Pappas’ child had missed 29 days of school up to November 20, the probable cause affidavit stated.
    Scott School District 2 officials had sent several letters to Pappas about her child missing school. She attended a meeting of the Scott County Attendance Review Board in October in regard to the absences, and board members had worked out an “action plan” for the mother and her child to follow to ensure that the student would be in school on a regular basis.
    The affidavit stated that Pappas failed to follow this plan, and the child continued to miss school.
    An Indiana State Trooper, Ray Dawson, visited the Pappas home twice in late November. He stated in the affidavit that the woman failed to provide him with any medical records that would support the child having a reason to miss school.
    The charge is a Class B misdemeanor.

?Suspect is arrested for grocery robbery PDF Print E-mail

?    An Austin man was arrested on Wednesday, January 14, and charged with the December 16 robbery of D&M Grocery on the north side of that community.
    Zach “Zachie” White, 24, was taken into custody by Austin police and transported to the Scott County Security Center in Scottsburg. What apparently made the case against White was his appearance in videos made by security cameras in a couple of other businesses. In each of the videos, recorded on December 16, White was wearing what appeared to be the same clothing described as being worn by the robber by a clerk at the small family-operated grocery. A clerk at one of those other stores also identified the man as White.
    The suspect is charged with one count of robbery, a Class C felony. When he appeared for an initial hearing in Scott Circuit Court on January 15, a not guilty plea was entered for him. White was assigned a jury trial date of June 29.
    Prosecutor Jason Mount also filed a petition for detainer on behalf of the State of Indiana. White will be held for 15 days without bail. Thereafter, bail will be set at $100,000 corporate surety or full cash.
