Several Calhoun residents appeared in Circuit Court Thursday.|
Charges were dropped against Grantsville resident Bernard Smith, who had been indicted on charges related to his failure to register as a sex offender. Judge Thomas Evans III said his actions did not violate the statute.
Calhoun resident James Jones entered a not guilty plea before the court, related to his alleged participation in a meth lab reportedly discovered at a residence on Hog Knob Hill. His case will go to trial in July.
Judge Evans granted several requests to suppress evidence against John David Hickman, 47, of Country Lanes, which led to the dismissal of the case. He had been charged with an illegal drug offense. Officers had seized 57 marijuana plants at the Mt. Zion sub-division last year after they obtained a search warrant.
Judge Evans issued a bench warrant for Jesse B. Roberts, who failed to appear for a hearing on the revocation of his probation.
A drug case against Grantsville resident Michael Lee Smith will go before the court next week for a plea.
A DUI case against Jimmy Keener will go before the court next week for a plea.
