Warrant charges invasion of privacy

From Local Sources

JASPER — The Dubois County Sheriff’s Department brought a man from Orange County on Friday to answer to a local warrant charging him with invasion of privacy.

Court records indicate the Indiana State Police investigated the case against Jason E. Basham, 37, Lebanon.

A woman who is the protected party in a protective order issued in June in Pike County reported to state police at the Jasper Post in October that Basham had allegedly violated the order via social media on Sept. 30.

After an investigation, a warrant charging Basham with a misdemeanor count of invasion of privacy was issued out of Dubois Circuit Court on Oct. 19. He was booked into the Dubois County Security Center on the active warrant at 10:09 a.m. Friday.

During an initial appearance in court Friday, a preliminary plea of not guilty was entered on his behalf by the court and his request for pauper counsel was approved. Basham’s bond was set at $500 and he was ordered to have no contact with the victim in the case.
