Missed hearing brings warrant issuance

From Local Sources


JASPER — A missed hearing this week in a methamphetamine case saw a Jasper man temporarily booked into the Dubois County Security Center.

Darryl C. Russell, 48, 1340 Jackson St., Jasper, was sentenced to 180 days on home detention last month after his probation was revoked in a December 2017 methamphetamine case in Dubois Superior Court. The court had also scheduled a review hearing for Wednesday.

When Russell failed to appear at the Wednesday morning hearing, a warrant was issued for his arrest.

Russell was booked into the Dubois County Security Center at 2:35 p.m. Wednesday on the just-issued warrant. During a court appearance Thursday, he was ordered released from the security center so he could begin home detention with electronic monitoring as ordered last month.

A new review hearing was scheduled for Thursday, June 20.
