?    The count of people charged in connection with a recent alleged underage drinking party on Reeves Road near Lexington increased to 12 as of Monday, February 2.
    A tip was received by law enforcement authorities on Friday night, January 23, that a party for older teens was being held at the residence of Kellie J. Robbins, 38, just north of Kinderhook Road in Lexington Township.
    Reserve Deputy Mike Tscheulin drove by the residence and reported to Deputy Joe Guarneri that there were several vehicles parked at the home. Deputy Don Campbell then joined Deputy Guarneri, Reserve Deputy Tscheulin, Deputy Joe Johnson and Probation Officer Scott Pool on a check of the house.
    Robbins was found there as were several people, all ages 18 to 20. One 16-year-old was also taken into custody and released to his mother.
    Those charged on January 26 with illegal possession/consumption/transportation of alcohol in Scott Superior Court included: Brittany L. Engle, 18, Austin; Lakyn Boyd, 19, Austin; Lee David Arbuckle, 18, Underwood; William Cheatam, 20, Deridder, La.; and Phillip A. Bowling, 18, Scottsburg. All of those charges are Class C misdemeanors. Robbins was charged with ten counts of furnishing alcohol to a minor, all Class C misdemeanors.
    Two other individuals who were found at the “party,” Nathan L. Davis, 21, Scottsburg, and Richard C. Howard, 18, Scottsburg, were charged in Scott Superior Court with disorderly conduct on January 26. Those are Class B misdemeanors.
    On Monday, February 2, four more young people were charged with illegal possession/consumption/transportation of alcohol by a minor. They include Justin W. Cole-Fox, 19, Austin; Robert S. Vetter, 19, Scottsburg; Jasmine R. Howard, 20, Scottsburg; and Haley D. Pedigo, 20, Madison. Vetter is the son of Kellie Robbins and was listed as a resident at the Reeve Road address.
    All of those charged have entered not guilty pleas and were released after posting bails. Trial dates were assigned by Judge Nicholas South.
    In portable alcohol breath testing done at the site, subjects’ results ranged from .013 to .06 percent, the case report indicated. Containers of alcohol were found throughout the home, and several of those arrested were taken into custody as they tried to hide in various rooms of the residence.
    As he was arresting Robbins, Deputy Campbell stated that he tried to explain to the woman that she could not furnish alcohol to a person under age 21. He said that Robbins had apparently thought she could allow underage drinking because, as she related to the officer, all of the party-goers were “...staying there and not going anywhere.”
    Reserve Deputy Donnie Monroe and Indiana State Police Shannon Burton and Matt Marshall assisted at the site. A van was used by the Sheriff’s Department to transport all suspects to the Scott County Security Center in Scottsburg.

Prior offense notice filed against man in new case PDF Print E-mail

?    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
Written by Marty Randall

?    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.
