Union Coun­ty State’s Attor­ney Tyler R. Edmonds announced today that Jef­fery R. Flem­ming (DOB 11/09/70) of 495 Wag­on Wheel Road in rur­al Wolf Lake has been charged with one count of Unlaw­ful Pro­duc­tion of Cannabis Plants, a Class 3 Felony.  Flem­ming was arrest­ed on Wednes­day August 3rd fol­low­ing an inves­ti­ga­tion by the Union Coun­ty Sheriff’s Office and Union Coun­ty Drug Task Force.   Flem­ming is alleged to have grown more than twen­ty (20) cannabis plants on the prop­er­ty at his Wag­on Wheel Road res­i­dence.  A pre­lim­i­nary hear­ing is sched­uled August 30th at the Union Coun­ty Cour­t­house in Jonesboro.

 

The Union Coun­ty State’s Attorney’s Office reminds the pub­lic that charges are not evi­dence of guilt.  A defen­dant is pre­sumed inno­cent and is enti­tled to a fair tri­al in which the gov­ern­ment has the bur­den of prov­ing guilt beyond a rea­son­able doubt.
