Warrant service advances disorderly conduct case

From Local Sources

JASPER — A disorderly conduct case advanced Monday after a defendant appeared pursuant to a failure-to-appear warrant.

Thomas L. Hubert, 31, Tell City, was charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct in April 2017, after a physical altercation occurred in the parking lot of a Jasper convenience store.

Hubert requested pauper counsel and a jury trial but failed to appear for subsequent hearings, prompting a warrant to be issued out of Dubois Superior Court in July 2017, according to court records.

On Friday, the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office transported Hubert to the Dubois County Security Center on the active warrant.

During a court appearance Monday, Hubert was released from custody on his own recognizance with a March 11 court date. The court advised him that if he fails to appear at the next hearing, a warrant may once again be issued.
