Union Coun­ty State’s Attor­ney Tyler R. Edmonds announced today that Fred­dy Morse, Jr. (DOB 10/01/1973) of Anna, Illi­nois, and Dan­ny J. Cook (DOB 01/29/1964) of Anna, Illi­nois, have been charged with one (1) count of Unlaw­ful Par­tic­i­pa­tion in Metham­phet­a­mine Pro­duc­tion, a Class X Felony.  The two are alleged to have engaged in the man­u­fac­ture of more than 15 grams of metham­phet­a­mine in Anna, Illi­nois.  Tabitha L. Bar­low (DOB 01/24/1990) of Anna, Illi­nois, has been charged with one (1) count of Unlaw­ful Pos­ses­sion of Metham­phet­a­mine, a Class 3 Felony.  Bar­low is alleged to have been in pos­ses­sion of metham­phet­a­mine.  All three were arrest­ed on July 9, 2013 at an Anna res­i­dence by Union Coun­ty Sher­iff Deputies and are being held at the Jack­son Coun­ty Jail in Mur­phys­boro, Illinois.

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.
