Police jail Kentucky man on warrant

From Local Sources


JASPER — The Dubois County Sheriff’s Office brought a Kentucky man to jail Thursday night on an active local warrant.

Evan T. King, 26, Maceo, Kentucky, was convicted in February 2018 in Dubois Circuit Court of attempted escape, a Level 5 felony, and possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor.

Court documents indicate King’s probation was transferred to Kentucky. Then, in April of this year, King was charged in McLean County, Kentucky, with burglary, resisting arrest and assault of a police or probation officer.

The Dubois County Prosecutor’s Office filed to revoke King’s probation and, on July 26, a warrant was issued to bring King to Dubois County for a revocation hearing. Local authorities are recommending that King’s probation be terminated and that he be required to serve a previously suspended sentence of 1,005 days in the Indiana Department of Correction consecutive to a Kentucky criminal sentence.

Authorities booked King into the Dubois County Security Center at 10:54 p.m. Thursday after picking him up at the Daviess County, Kentucky, detention center.
